Don Bradman Cricket 14 has been announced today, to be released at some point this year for 360, PS3 and PC.
The Aussie-developed game will be going head-to-head with Ashes Cricket 2013 from Trickstar Games, which will was recently delayed until November and will also be hitting the Wii U.
Melbourne developer Big Ant has been working on the title for four years, and local publisher HES has teamed up with the Bradman Foundation to make the game happen.
Sebastian Giompaolo, MD of HES, said: “It is indeed an honour to be able to bring the greatest player to a technology savvy generation of fans in what promises to be the greatest cricket game of all time. [W]e at HES are really excited with what they have been able to achieve. It is far superior to any cricket game in the market.”
Fighting words indeed.
It’ll be an interesting one to watch, particularly here in Australia, as the mega-brands of Bradman and the Ashes go toe to toe.
