Corsair has recently announced that it will take over SCUF Gaming, the developers of high-performance gaming controllers for Xbox, PlayStation, and PC. Corsair by acquiring SCUF will gain intellectual property and patents related to game controllers. The transaction is said to be completed by the end of December 2019.
The company holds more than 100 patents related to their improvements on traditional controllers. It has also designed different controller layouts to help players increase their dexterity and performance in different environments. Scuf is a valued manufacturer and its controllers are often used by professional gamers and streamers.
“We are thrilled to greatly expand our portfolio of industry-leading peripherals and enter the gaming controller space to help gamers play at their best, SCUF leads the market for performance controllers and is a key ingredient to the success of countless esports professionals. SCUF will make an excellent and winning addition to the vast lineup of award-winning Corsair and Elgato products,” says Corsair’s founder and CEO Andy Paul.
SCUF controllers feature a broad range of configurable components including a patented paddle control system, removable back paddles, a quick-access remapping switch, customizable thumbsticks, hair-trigger, trigger stops and extenders, choice of D-pads, and an interchangeable magnetic faceplate.
However, SCUF Gaming will remain a separate brand within the Corsair family. Corsair says warranties, purchases, and support are unaffected and will continue to be provided by SCUF Gaming.
