Atari Announces Intellivision Brand Acquisition

Atari announced it has purchased the Intellivision brand and more than 200 games from Intellvision Entertainment. As part of the deal, Intellivision Entertainment will rebrand and continue developing and distributing the Amico game console with a license from Atari to distribute new versions of Intellivision games on the console. Atari will also look to expand digital and physical distribution of legacy Intellivision games, potentially create new games, and explore licensing opportunities. 

“This was a very rare opportunity to unite former competitors and bring together fans of Atari, Intellivision, and the golden age of gaming,” chairman and CEO of Atari Wade Rosen said in a press release. 

“Atari has been a valuable partner and we have every confidence they will be a responsible steward of the storied Intellvision brand,” CEO of Intellivision Entertainment Phil Adam said. “We look forward to our expanded collaboration and bringing a broad array of new Atari and Intellivision titles to the Amico and Amico Home family gaming platforms.”
