Following its delisting from the NYSE and subsequent bankruptcy filing, peripheral-maker Mad Catz is back for 2018 (and possibly beyond).
Mad Catz was believed to be dead after months and months of tumultuous financials, but now the company is back under a slightly new banner called Mad Catz Global Limited, and plans to release a slew of new gaming hardware peripherals for 2018. In fact the company has announced a trio of new hardware: the Rat Air mouse, the RGB-lit Strike 4 mechanical keyboard, and the Freq 4 gaming headset. All of these new devices (and possibly more) will be shown off at CES 2018 in Las Vegas.
"We couldn't be more excited than to begin 2018 by announcing the return of Mad Catz to the global gaming arena," said Mad Catz director of sales and operations, Selena Chang, in a recent press release.
"Mad Catz 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."
Mad Catz goes up against competitors like Razer, Corsair, G.SKILL, and Kingston's HyperX brand.
