SteelSeries Acquires  KontrolFreek

SteelSeries today announces its acquisition of KontrolFreek, the industry leader in high-performance controller accessories. This acquisition bolsters SteelSeries’ already strong presence in the console gaming market, and further equips it for success in the next generation of consoles. This is SteelSeries’ second major acquisition this year, after purchasing A-Volute, creators of Nahimic and the leading independent developer of 3D sound solutions for gaming, in April.

KontrolFreek is the creator of globally-renowned Performance Gaming Gear, including Performance Thumbsticks, Precision Rings, Performance Grips, Gaming Cables, and other high-quality products for PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch and PC. KontrolFreek’s controller accessories give gamers solutions that increase precision, accuracy and response time, regardless of platform.

KontrolFreek’s expertise in controller accessories aligns perfectly with SteelSeries’ envisaged future products for console gamers, and PC and mobile gamers that use controllers. Acquiring the talented KontrolFreek team will accelerate SteelSeries’ vision for its controller and accessory business. Additionally, KontrolFreek’s community of more than 4 million gamers, FreekNation, is a testament to the popularity and quality of their current product lines.
