Mad Catz comes back from the dead

Mad Catz comes back from the dead

The R.A.T. AIR is a new model of the notable and fully-adjustable gaming mouse, which now features a wireless power system. Word is, the Chinese factories that produced Mad Catz products got together to resurrect the brand.

Mad Catz products are created to appeal to gamers of all abilities and across multiple platforms including in-home gaming consoles, handheld gaming consoles, Windows® PC and Mac® computers, smart phones, tablets and other mobile devices.

Nearly a year since Mad Catz filed for bankruptcy and shut down, a new press release has revealed that the famed game hardware maker will be returning to the fray this year in the form of a new company called Mad Catz Global Limited. Mad Catz Global Limited is headquartered in Kowloon, Hong Kong. Then came a bad year in which the company severely overestimated the need for Rock Band peripherals, which ultimately led to the company's bankruptcy and closure. This new line of products will be the start of a newer, more humble Mad Catz, the company says. All of these new devices (and possibly more) will be shown off at CES 2018 in Las Vegas.

Mad Catz will indeed be coming back this year, as confirmed by company spokesman Alex Verrey, who was the director of communications for the first Mad Catz and now the head of a consultancy firm that does public relations work for the revived Mad Catz.

"We couldn't be more excited than to begin 2018 by announcing the return of Mad Catz to the global gaming arena".

Mad Catz waved goodbye last March, but apparently, that was not the end of the story for the gaming peripherals company. This likely won't be the same Mad Catz that sold you the cheap Dreamcast controller that you always let your friends use, or the tiny, see-through GameCube controller that your younger family loved for letting them play the same games you played.

According to Verrey, the new owner is focused on quality and not quantity, which means we should see less of whatever that was that Mad Catz showed off a few years back. '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.
