Cricket 09 is an upcoming EA Sports video game, expected to be released on multiple consoles. Cricket 09 would be the ninth major release in the EA Sports Cricket series.
Little is known about Cricket 09, with no formal announcement from EA Sports of the title. Speculation regarding the release of a new title was ignited by a classification of the game by the Australian Office of Film and Literature Classification.
A New Zealand shopping website Mighty Ape listed a cricket video game titled "EA Sports ICC Cricket 09: 20/20 World Cup" that was to be released on Friday, 8 May 2009 on Microsoft Windows., however this was since taken down.
Further suspicion of a cancellation came from a blog post by EA Sports chief Peter Moore where he stated EA Sports had "absolutely nothing to announce about a cricket game". However past denial of the existence of a Wii version of the game, suggests that it is just an unannounced game, rather than a non-existent one. Other evidence supporting the game's existence is the ability to register the game in EA's online registration site, with it listed under the name Cricket 09 in the PC category.
