Remember Mad Catz? They're Making A Comeback

Remember Mad Catz? They're Making A Comeback 9 Months After Closing, Mad Catz Is Born Again

Several months ago, the video game peripheral manufacturer Mad Catz filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy, which led many to believe that the company had ceased operations altogether after years of financial troubles. For the sake of the accessory maker's future, this hopefully means it has learned from the fiasco stemming from Rock Band 4's sales failures, which almost bled the company dry.

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. Three of these are the Strike 4 mechanical keyboard, the Freq 4 gaming headset, and the Rat Air gaming mouse that operates wirelessly through its mousepad. Word is, the Chinese factories that produced Mad Catz products got together to resurrect the brand. The three products are part of the classic series of Mad Catz, showing that the company will start its revival by going back to its roots, while focusing on the quality of its products instead of the quantity of devices it offers. The original company was headquartered in San Diego, while this new iteration is based out of Hong Kong. Beginning their run with fight sticks in 2008 when they were commissioned by Capcom to create special arcade-style controllers for the release of Street Fighter 4, the company went on to become the go-to brand for casual and pro players alike, and also sponsored some of the best Street Fighter players to ever compete. There doesn't seem to be any plans for him to return to the company at this point in time, so the future of Mad Catz fight sticks is still unclear. More from Mad Catz is expected then. "Mad Catz has been a permanent fixture in gaming for nearly three decades and we firmly believe it's best days lie ahead", said Director of Sales and Operations Selena Chang. "This is why the new products continue the look and character of the old range so closely, these guys have many years of experience with the Mad Catz product line".

"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".
