Mad Catz Returns With New Mouse, Headset and More

Mad Catz returns from the dead with a dangerous-looking wireless mouse

Update:In an official announcement, Mad Catz has revealed that its debut product line-up includes the RAT mice, STRIKE keyboards, FREQ gaming headsets and GLIDE gaming surfaces.

CNET reports that the company has been revived by a Chinese holding company that is comprised of people who worked for Mad Catz's factories in that region back in the day.

Peripheral maker Mad Catz is back under new management.

The first new product to be shown off is a revival of Mad Catz' previous gaming mouse series, the R.A.T. AIR.

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. This unique mouse carries on with the full-on adjustability and outlandish styling the series is known for, but adds in continual wireless power from an included high-end mousepad called G.L.I.D.E., made for ease of use and precision.

So how did Mad Catz manage to swing back? When Rock Band 4 struggled to sell as well as developer Harmonix and Mad Catz had hoped, it was the beginning of the end of the company, as Mad Catz went through a series of layoffs and sell-offs, and eventually filed for bankruptcy last march.

The company's return is of course heralded by a new line of gear. This is a wireless mouse that will be powered via a "wireless activation gaming surface", or through a USB cable, if required. We are talking about Mad Catz, which before its surprise departure from the market had been focusing on gaming peripherals for almost three decades. Finally, Mad Catz is also coming out with the F.R.E.Q.4 headset.

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