Mad Catz making Force Feedback Racing Wheel for Xbox One

Xbox One-owning racing fans will have the option of picking up a racing wheel: Mad Catz's Force Feedback Racing Wheel is in production exclusively for Microsoft's upcoming console, Mad Catz announced yesterday.

The peripheral includes two force feedback motors, and its anodized aluminum wheel face can be removed from the base in case users want to upgrade the wheel in the future. It also comes with a customizable set of pedals that will allow users to adjust resistance, height and spacing for both the accelerator and brake pedals.

"We have previously commented on how the enhanced performance of Xbox One opens up additional scope for innovation and believe that the precision engineering and customization of the Force Feedback Racing Wheel will appeal to the passionate racing gamer," said Darren Richardson, president and CEO of Mad Catz, in a press release announcing the wheel.

A Mad Catz representative said the company worked with Forza Motorsport 5 developer Turn 10 Studios in building the Force Feedback Racing Wheel. Forza 5 and Electronic Arts' Need for Speed Rivals are the two racing games set to be available at the Xbox One launch in November, although it's unclear if the latter title will support racing wheels.

Mad Catz has yet to confirm pricing for the wheel. The PR rep said the company is "planning on hitting console launch" with the peripheral.
