Ashes Cricket 2013 was a cricket video game developed by Trickstar Games and published by 505 Games.[1] The game was released on November 22nd, 2013 on Steam, with plans for three console ports in the future (the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U specifically).[2] Upon release, however, the game was almost immediately panned by critics and consumers for its numerous bugs, and fans of the series were overall highly dissatisfied by it.[3] All of this led 505 Games to pull it from Steam after only four days as well as officially canceling all development on the game on November 28th, including the ports.[4] While the Steam version can still potentially be obtained through unused keys, there's no way to get any of the console ports, and it's unknown if any work was done on them at all or if any versions would have had system-exclusive features, like Wii U touchscreen functionality.
