    Loved this post from the BA forum so sharing it here...Was Ross' reply to the new year post he posted on FB...

    I'll clarify, a little :) - to me a giant leap forward would be the same leap as last time again. Expect a much more polished presentation and a very deep game.

    Selfishly as a pc player I'd prefer it as it is now than to spend cash on licenses. They usually lead to things not being able to be edited.

    Having mods able to be cross-platform would be brilliant for the consolers though.

    No it was from a question I asked Ross about getting the uniforms and bats that the PC community had created added to consoles and about DBC 16 not really needing to have licencing as the acadamy is excellent as is

    Funnyadit's talking about a different post.

    Probably best that everyone links to sources when quoting.

    Hopefully there isn't an ashes cricket 16 stealing licenses and making a terrible game this time

    Given that there's no Ashes series, I'd think that highly unlikely.

    admittedly the information is very little at this stage but what's encouraging here is the scale of ambition - not just a more polished iteration but another leap forward.

    i hope it can be achieved, but equally i hope the ambitions are realistic and chasing a unicorn doesn't impact on the fundamentals: DBC14 got so much bang on but because something as fundamental as bowling to the AI was not up to the mark it was difficult to just "play a game of cricket". that's what i'm looking for in the next one: that the majority of my long form matches are completed without feeling like a chore.

    While I can't comment on the "terribleness" of any unreleased game, I doubt there will be much, if any, licencing as game companies tend to hoard those regardless of whether they want to release a game or not. Would imagine there would be some multi-year arrangement so I wouldn't hold your breath...

    There's only really *one* company that can afford to do that that makes sports games. :-)
    Others vary from deal to deal - sometimes it's a one-off event that is licensed, sometimes it's a longer running deal.
