The Intellivision was released by Mattel Electronics in the United States on December 3, 1979, in the rest of North America in 1980, in the United Kingdom in 1981, in Europe, Japan, and South Africa in 1982, and in Brazil in 1982.

After the video game crash of 1983, Mattel sold the rights to the system to a group of investors that formed INTV Corporation. INTV sold the Intellivision and contracted developers to create games for the system from 1984 to 1990.


The legacy of the Intellivision remains, even after its heyday. Independent, unlicensed games continue to be produced for the system to this day.

Then license-holder of the system, Intellivision Productions, has capitalized on the system's continuing popularity by releasing compilations including Intellivision Lives! and Intellivision Rocks, and partnering with AtGames to release the Intellivision Flashback microconsole.
