Atari was founded in 1972 by Nolan Bushnell and Ted Dabney. The company played a formative role in the video game industry, introducing a series of world-renowned brands like Asteroids®, Centipede®, Missile Command®, Pong® and others to the gaming lexicon as well as the first widely adopted home video game console with swappable cartridges, the iconic Atari 2600. Five decades later, the company remains an active and innovative brand, globally recognized for its multi-platform, interactive entertainment and licensed products.
