Ruining the sports game tradition of releasing well ahead of the year indicated by the title, Big Ant has pushed Don Bradman Cricket 14 into 2014.
The delay was announced on the game's Facebook page.
"Don Bradman Cricket 14 will not release in 2013. In order to bring the best possible game to the market at the best possible time we have decided to move the date into 2014," the developer wrote.
Big Ant does not have a new release window as yet, but said it will update as soon as possible and is working to get the game to all markets simultaneously.
To reward fans for their patience, a new Don Bradman Cricket Academy will be release today, including the long awaited Nets Practice mode.
Don Bradman Cricket 14 is expected on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
