Mad Catz have announced that they are to produce a line of Gears of War 3 accessories for the Xbox 360, a title surely to be one of the biggest games of the year.
Though Mad Catz wouldn’t go into specifics concerning the peripherals, they did reveal the range would include “officially branded specialty controllers [and] headphones”.
“We are delighted to extend our relationship with Epic Games and look forward to creating a distinctive range of accessories for the next release of one of the most successful franchises in the industry’s history,” said Darren Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz.
“Our Gears of War agreement is consistent with our strategies to align Mad Catz with the industry’s most popular and anticipated game titles and to develop and globally distribute high-value products that enhance the gaming experience. Gears of War is a marquee relationship for Mad Catz and helps us further grow and diversify our industry-leading portfolio of branded videogame accessories.”
The long-awaited conclusion to the Gears of War trilogy will touch down before Christmas of this year, and is already being tipped for Game of the Year status long before anyone has even played it.
