Mad Catz Interactive has announced this morning that they have reached an agreement with Microsoft Corp for the ability to publish video games on the Xbox 360 entertainment console. This comes shortly after Mad Catz made it known to the world that they will be entering the video game dev and publishing world.
Mad Catz intends to bring their expertise to the playing field across a variety of genres. Mad Catz has a long history in the flight stick realm and now has ThunderHawk Studios to create flight sims with. The Xbox 360 currently supports proprietary hardware which means Mad Catz will have to license a stick through Microsoft for any flight sims they could release on the system.
Darren Richardson, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz: “The execution of the Xbox 360 Publisher License Agreement marks an important milestone as we pursue our longer term goal of expanding our participation in developing, publishing and distributing games.”
