Big Ant Studios is back with a fresh iteration of their cricket video game series and this time, it’s Cricket 24. The upcoming title will apparently be bigger and better than Cricket 22, featuring new game modes, tournaments, and a lot more.

Apart from that, certain mechanics have been overhauled, and several newly licensed teams will finally mark their official debut.

So, if you’re wondering when the game releases along with all the other relevant details, our handy hub has everything you need to know.


Cricket 24: Release date

Big Ant Studios have confirmed that Cricket 24 will release on October 5, 2023. Previously, it was scheduled for a June 2023 release but now it has been delayed by a few months. The Nintendo Switch version, however, will release in November 2024.

Cricket 24 will include newly licensed nations, Indian T20 teams, and several leagues from around the world. The devs have pushed the release further to ensure there’s enough time to properly capture and represent the new players and teams.

All Cricket 24 platforms

At launch, Cricket 24 will be available on the following platforms:

The game will have full cross-platform support, meaning you can choose to play online against your friends or the best players in the world regardless of platform.

PC users will eventually be able to play the game via Xbox Game Pass, presumably six months after launch – just like Cricket 22.

Teams featured in Cricket 24

As of now – Australia, England, India, Ireland, New Zealand, and West Indies, are some of the major nations whose teams will officially be featured in Cricket 24. The developers will announce more nations in the coming days.

Apart from that, more than 200 players will have full photogrammetry.

All tournaments in Cricket 24

The Ashes have always been the major tournament featured in Big Ant Studios’ releases and it’s no different this time. However, some other major tournaments across the world have also been officially licensed with the game.

Some of these tournaments include – KFC BBL, Weber WBBL, The Hundred, and Caribbean Premier League. Certain professional Indian T20 teams will also be announced in the coming days. It needs to be seen whether these teams are from the ever-so-popular Indian Premier League or not.

What’s new in Cricket 24?

One of the major new additions to Cricket 24 is the Pro Team. The concept is similar to the Ultimate Team from FIFA, where players can collect player cards and build their own dream team. They will also be able to take on weekly challenges in both single-player and multiplayer modes of the game, similar to FIFA 23.

The fielding has also been completely overhauled. This game will have more realistic and responsive fielding controls, something that the previous titles have never seen.
