Mad Catz Returns
This is an interesting development. Good to see them back.
Mad Catz, the legendary name is video game products and accessories, is Back in the Game, some nine months after closing their doors!
Proof positive that Mad Catz has at least nine lives, the company is back, under new management, with new ideas, and new products!
To celebrate, here’s a nifty launch trailer that we’ve prepared, expanding on the teaser we circulated a couple of weeks back! Feel free to use this as you wish of course!
Those who have worked with me before will know that after working in house at Mad Catz for almost a decade, this is an incredibly personal story for me to break.
We have so much more to share through the year, but suffice to say, the new Mad Catz is dedicated to creating state-of-the-art, high quality products, designed in-house to rival anything available today. At CES 2018, the first in the new range will be unveiled in the form of a range of new PC products.
Mad Catz will be at CES, appearing via invitation only in a suite at the Westgate Hotel. The diary is pretty full right now, but if you’re in town and would like to come see us, drop us a line and we’ll see what we can do. If you need further images or information, please just reach on out. Once again, plenty of news will follow in the weeks ahead.
