Mad Catz Re-Emerges! [VIDEO]

There’s a twist in this plot, though.

The company, known for its peripherals (such as controllers, arcade fighting sticks, etc.), put a lot of faith into Rock Band 4 in 2015 – they made the guitar for it, but they did not see a profit, causing them to file for bankruptcy last year. However, as we previously wrote, the company is making a comeback, but the San Diego base is replaced by a Hong Kong one – possibly, the Chinese manufacturing companies are backing the name at the moment, according to CNET.

„We couldn’t be more excited than to begin 2018 by announcing the return of Mad Catz to the global gaming arena. The company has been a permanent fixture in gaming for almost three decades, and we firmly believe it’s best days lie ahead. 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,” their statement reads.

We already know about a few of their products: 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. That list does not include arcade fighting sticks – are they leaving the products behind that earned Mad Catz reputation? We’ll see shortly: CES 2018 is held between January 9 and 12.
