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. But now Mad Catz is back, and with it the perfect opportunity for a joke about how many lives it has.
According to a press release today, Mad Catz is ‘under new management, with new ideas, new attitude and most importantly, an entire range of new, high-quality gaming products!’
The first of the new Mad Catz range will be unveiled at this year’s CES. This will include a new range of the R.A.T. mice, S.T.R.I.K.E. keyboards, F.R.E.Q. headsets and G.L.I.D.E. surfaces. Got to respect the dedication to the acronyms.
Mad Catz ran into problems when it partnered with Harmonix to co-publish Rock Band 4 as well as make the peripheral instruments, so when RB4 didn’t have the legs it was expected too, Mad Catz was left in trouble and with a bunch of unsold drumkits.
There are, apparently, more details to come.
