Turtle Beach Has Decided To Retire the ROCCAT Brand After 20 Years

ROCCAT is a brand we know very well here at ThinkComputers. The brand was founded in Germany in 2006 and since then they've been producing some pretty awesome gaming products, perhaps best known for their Kone mouse series and Vulcan gaming keyboards. One thing that really made ROCCAT stand out in the early days was their software. It was really in-depth and gave you a lot of options that other gaming peripheral software had at the time.

2019 in Turtle Beach Acquired Turtle Beach for $19 million.. Now it looks like Turtle Beach is retiring the ROCCAT brand after 20 years. All exiting product lines will be transitioned to the Turtle Beach branding and it appears that ROCCAT's social channels are being rebranded to “Turtle Beach PC”.

“We want to bring a greater level of integration to our family of products across console, PC and simulation,” a statement on Turtle Beach, formerly Rocket, says the website. “We felt that time and resources would be best spent focusing under one brand and developing a range of products that matter most to gamers.”

Although it is sad to see the ROCCAT name go, we hope the product lines will continue under the Turtle Beach name. Do you have a favorite ROCCAT product from the past?
