Rumors of a Microsoft and Razer partnership were circulating for some time, and back in September we reported that an Xbox One mouse and keyboard setup was on a horizon. This was confirmed at X018, when the firm revealed its "Designed for Xbox" mice and keyboard, with features like a dedicated Xbox button and "Xbox Dynamic Lighting."
Aside from a flashy trailer featuring glimpses of the mouse and keyboard, Razer didn't provide any other details. We only knew that more information would be announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2019) next year. While we still don't know how much this fabled mouse and keyboard will cost, we've now a better look at the device on Razer's website.
You can clearly see the Xbox Button on the bottom right where the "Control" key should be. The Xbox Dynamic Lighting is also on display and appears to be based on Razer's "Chroma" technology which provides similar functions on the company's keyboards. All in all, it's a gorgeous device, bolstered by its mechanical keys. Hopefully it'll won't be too hefty and tout strong battery life.
Many game developers have praised Xbox One mouse and keyboard support. Epic Games detailed how Fortnite is one of the first titles to offer mouse and keyboard input alongside previously announced Warframe. However, Bomber Crew, Deep Rock Galactic, Strange Brigade, Warhammer: Vermintide 2, War Thunder, and X-Morph Defense will also add support in November. Developers working on Children of Morta, DayZ, Minion Master, Moonlighter, Vigor, Warface, and Wargroove promised mouse and keyboard support in the future.
