Dubai, United Arab Emirates, March 17, 2019 — Thrustmaster, enjoying an established reputation throughout the world, is a key player in the video gaming market, thanks to the quality of its officially-licensed products.
Founded in 1990 and purchased by Guillemot Corporation in 1999, Thrustmaster is proud to use its extensive know-how and technological expertise in pursuing its core values of Passion, Quality and Innovation in the video game accessories market. For nearly 30 years now, Thrustmaster has been developing groundbreaking solutions to satisfy all types of gamers, creating products that make supremely precise gaming experiences possible — including cutting-edge racing wheels, joysticks and gamepads — on all gaming platforms. In order to even further enhance the levels of realism and immersion in legendary gaming worlds for end users, Thrustmaster has always sought to develop products and accessories licensed by prestigious partners, with the goal of creating a link between the virtual and real worlds, and pushing the boundaries of realism with its incredibly lifelike, 1:1 scale replica devices.
Above all, the brand’s success can be attributed to the commitment to excellence of its engineers in designing products, as well as its teams’ unflagging openness and listening to the wants and needs of its different communities of gamers.
The T-GT — the official racing wheel for all Gran Turismo Sport competitions — represents the brand’s high-end flagship wheel in terms of unique technological developments, thanks to Thrustmaster’s extremely close working relationship with the blockbuster game’s different teams. The end result is an unrivaled level of realism with regard to the sensations that gamers are able to feel and experience.
The wheel’s counterpart in the world of flight simulation is the formidable HOTAS Warthog: an ultra-precise joystick that’s an official replica of the A-10C attack aircraft’s flight controls, officially licensed by the U.S. Air Force.
