Cricket 24 release date

Cricket 24 will arrive on 5 October 2023. This is a shame as we are in the midst of a thrilling Ashes series right now. But at least we have a firm date to circle in our calendars!

Platforms

There's good news on this front though. Cricket 24 will be available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Owners of consoles such as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One don't have to worry about buying a past-gen version of the game, as they can upgrade it to the latest generation for free.

There will be a Nintendo Switch port, but the expected release date for this platform is November 2023.

For the rest of the platforms, players can already pre-order the game on Amazon for £49.99. There aren't any bonuses or early access tied to pre-orders though.

Career mode

Not too much is known about the Cricket 24 carer mode at the moment. What we do know is that you will start as a club cricketer and have to work your way up to the biggest stage.

You will need to hone your skills and grow a fan base to make your way into short-form or test lineups. Or maybe both!
