Peripheral Maker Mad Catz Is Now Back Under New Management New Range of Products to Be Revealed at CES

Mad Catz has been a fixture in the gaming industry for almost three decades, so it's good to see the company is back and with it's commitment to quality, maybe we'll see a return to form ... and awesome arcade sticks.

Now, just in time for the Consumer Electronics Show 2018 next week, Mad Catz is back from the dead.

Mad Catz has come back from what many believed to be game over for the peripheral maker. From the brief glimpses you get in the teaser video, you can see that it's a rather restrained design; it's black on black with white legends, with only a funky graphic on the front bezel for sizzle.

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. The company is perhaps best known with gamers for its creation of third party controllers and other products of various shapes and sizes for PC and consoles, including everything from traditional controllers and memory cards through to more specialist products like racing wheels.

The Rat Air doesn't rely on battery power, instead resting on a powered gaming surface that keeps the juices flowing, likely in a similar fashion to Logitech's Powerplay system.

A little over a year ago, hardware manufacturer Mad Catz filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Lastly, the F.R.E.Q. 4 gaming headset implements high-quality 40mm neodymium drivers and includes a metal plated. Mad Catz is also making earbuds that are equipped with a boom mic, as well as the dangerous-looking Rat Pro X3 that features a swappable thumb rest, palm rest, pinkie rest, scroll wheel, and more.

Mad Catz Global Limited, the legendary brand, leading innovation in gaming hardware for nearly three decades, announced a surprise return to the worldwide gaming scene.

Some of the company's new management have given an update on the return of Mad Catz, too.
