The company’s new venture ThunderHawk Studios, is a new game development studio focusing on flight simulation MMOs. Mad Catz has not declared any actual specifics on the game titles they are working on, but they did state the group will "focus on creating a sequence of [massively-multiplayer online] flight simulation video games." Perhaps the organization is searching to consider a crack in the marketplace of video games like "Warhawk."

A very long time maker of third-party equipment and arcade controllers for fighting video games, Madcatz has chose to make the leap to generating video games of their very own. Yesterday they declared the opening of Thunderhawk Studios in beautiful San Diego, CA. Thunderhawk will probably be focusing on making MMO video games for your computer, that will most likely adhere to the trending free to play business model that most MMOs make use of nowadays and therefore are hoping to launch their first game title in 2012.

“The formation of ThunderHawk Studios is an important milestone as we pursue our longer term goal of expanding our participation in developing, publishing and distributing games.”

“The addition of flight simulation games should leverage the market share leadership and global distribution enjoyed by our flight simulation hardware products,” said Darren Richardson, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. “The formation of ThunderHawk Studios is an important milestone as we pursue our longer term goal of expanding our participation in developing, publishing and distributing games.”
