Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. (“Mad Catz”) (NYSE MKT: MCZ) announced today that it will launch a new flight simulation experience entitled Combat Pilot in the summer of 2012. Combat Pilot introduces multiplayer, military aviation and combat operations to the realistic world of flight simulation, where simulation enthusiasts from around the world can train, fly, fight and interact together.
