Gaming peripheral icon rises from bankruptcy ashes

Gaming peripheral icon rises from bankruptcy ashes

'We couldn't be more excited than to begin 2018 by announcing the return of Mad Catz to the global gaming arena. After liquidation, the company officially close up shop, but apparently, some former employees on the manufacturing side (in China) made a decision to pick up the pieces and keep on trucking as Mad Catz Global Limited and will be based out of Kowloon, Hong Kong.

Mad Catz have today unveiled that they're back after becoming bankrupt in April 2017, and they've got their claws out with new management and new products as we enter 2018.

Mad Catz Global Limited will be demonstrating new products in the range through invitation only at CES 2018, taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada from January 9 through 12, 2018.

Last year Mad Catz, known for making stuff like gaming mice, headsets and fightsticks, as well as the peripherals for Rock Band, filed for bankruptcy and shuttered its doors after betting on the success of Rock Band 4 didn't pay off.

Mad Catz will be revived this year, according to CNET. The device has a wireless power system, drawing power via a wireless activation gaming surface instead of a battery pack.

The S.T.R.I.K.E. 4 keyboard is aluminum with mechanical switches (the company has not said what it's using) and RGB backlighting. Now, he runs a gaming consultancy firm that does PR for the new Mad Catz. The new products are rounded out by the F.R.E.Q. 4, a gaming headset with a blend of retro and gamer styling that boasts 40mm neodymium drivers, metal plating, and an adjustable boom.

They still look a little like Christian Bale's "tumbler" Batmobile, built out of lego and laser pens, then.

Mad Catz had a long shelf life as a manufacturer of third-party hardware, peripherals, and arcade sticks. Mad Catz has been a permanent fixture in gaming for nearly three decades and we firmly believe its best days lie ahead, ' claims Selena Chang, Mad Catz' incoming director of sales and operations.
