Mad Catz is dead, long live Mad Catz.
The third party peripheral giant used up all nine lives and died in March last year, but is due to return under new management, showing a collection of products at CES 2018 next week ahead of a full relaunch.
Mad Catz was well known for its R.A.T. gaming mice, FightSticks and the pad for your PS2 you made your mates use. Its return will see them the firm on just a small selection of items, with newly designed R.A.T. mice, S.T.R.I.K.E. keyboards, F.R.E.Q. gaming headsets and G.L.I.D.E gaming surfaces. The range is small right now and focused on a few core products, each of which have had a spruce up.
“We couldn’t be more excited than to begin 2018 by announcing the return of Mad Catz to the global gaming arena. Mad Catz has been a permanent fixture in gaming for almost three decades and we firmly believe it’s best days lie ahead,” said Selena Chang, director of sales and operations for Mad Catz Global Limited.
“Through listening to gamers worldwide, we plan to once again forge a path of innovation in the gaming hardware community, and we’re already working on delivering products which we believe will enhance gamers’ abilities and do justice to the Mad Catz name. We can’t wait to unveil a little more at CES 2018 and in the months to come."
