Codemasters announced today that it will publish Ashes Cricket 2009 for the Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3 this summer.
Developed by Transmission Games, Ashes Cricket 2009 will continue to build on the heritage that Codemasters has enjoyed with its Brian Lara series with great batting, fielding and bowling gameplay for cricket fans all over the world.
“The Ashes is set to be the sporting event of the summer and it’s great to be producing the official game of the Series,” commented Jamie Firth, Producer, Codemasters.
“In partnering with the development team at Transmission Games, Ashes Cricket 2009 is a cricket title with an unprecedented heritage that comes from two companies that know and love the sport. The Brian Lara titles became the number one cricket gaming brand for over ten years and it’s a reputation that we fully intend to continue with Ashes Cricket 2009.”
John Perera, ECB Commercial Director said, “The Ashes is one of the iconic challenges in world sport. With cricket set to dominate the sporting calendar this summer we're delighted to be able to give cricket fans the chance to follow in the footsteps of their heroes and try and win back the Ashes for England.
“Cricket as a sport lends itself extremely well to this type of treatment and we are pleased that with Codemasters technical expertise we will be providing gamers with the next best thing to be playing out in the middle. We are sure it will be a great success."
Look out for more on Ashes Cricket 2009 later in the year.

Please make it like a proper cricket game where you can hit in the gaps and actually run . In the other cricket games it was impossible to hit the gaps . You either got caught or you hit a 4 or 6 and that was just annoying.
If this game has solid controls and decent graphics with good commentary and good physics topped off with good animation , im so in .
