Corsair Ups Its International Peripheral Game with Raptor Gaming Acquisition

Corsair, once known primarily for its memory products, will look to be a major player in the PC gaming peripheral market with the acquisition of "certain assets" of Raptor Gaming. If you've never heard of Raptor Gaming before, it's because they're primarily focused on the European market, and in particular Germany.

As part of the deal, Corsair takes hold of Raptor Gaming's full line of keyboards, mice, headsets, and accessories, With these products in tow, Corsair intends to launch a new gaming line to go along with its existing Vengeance products (rather than supplant it), though it sounds like the company will focus its efforts in Germany.

Raptor Gaming CEO Dirk Schunk and COO Heinz-Dieter Ludwig will remain on board to help facilitate a smooth transaction, Corsair said.
