That announcement is apparently the return of Mad Catz.
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.
Nearly a year since Mad Catz filed for bankruptcy and shut down, a new press release has revealed that the famed game hardware maker will be returning to the fray this year in the form of a new company called Mad Catz Global Limited. A line of PC gaming hardware including new R.A.T. mice, S.T.R.I.K.E. keyboards, F.R.E.Q. gaming headsets and G.L.I.D.E. gaming surfaces.
USA places Pakistan on 'Special Watch List'

Mad Catz, a company known for weird but fun (and often expensive) gaming peripherals, is back from bankruptcy.
Key products in the new range include the R.A.T.an-all new version of the iconic, fully-adjustable gaming mouse, now with a state-of-the-art wireless power system. A teaser video for the resurrection of Mad Catz can be seen below.
Having declared bankruptcy last March, Mad Catz might as well have been a company that would have little to no shot of coming back.

Mad Catz are also planning a new RAT mouse, the Air. The wire is linked to the pad rather than the mouse, so you get all of the benefits of a cord, being infinite use time without changing batteries or charging, along with all of the freedom of a wireless mouse.
Much of the company's product nomenclature remains. One is a more standard over-the-ear cup design (40mm neodymium drivers and a metal plated frame), and the other is a stripped-down, lightweight earpiece and mic design. "Mad Catz has been a permanent fixture in gaming for nearly three decades and we firmly believe its best days lie ahead", Mad Catz director of sales and operations Selena Chang said.
