Less than twelve months since they announced bankruptcy and the cessation of their operations, hardware manufacturer Mad Catz has confirmed they’re back in business.
The company has been acquired by a group from China, folks who historically worked with the company on the manufacturing side of the business.
“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 director of sales and operations Selena Chang.
“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.”
The new management team, while not from the previous management group, are very familiar with Mad Catz’s range of accessories and peripherals.
Confirmed properties to return thus far include their R.A.T gaming mice, S.T.R.I.K.E keyboards and F.R.E.Q headsets. You can expect their products to be shown off at CES next week.
