I'm pretty sure it was released in early 1981.

Whenever you have a question about the release year/month of an Atari 2600 game, go here:
 
randomterrain.com/atari-2600-memories.html#memories
 
 
Here is the Othello entry:
 
randomterrain.com/atari-2600-memories-history-1981.html#othello
 
I and other AtariAge members look for release date info whenever we get the chance. Those pages are updated every time we find new evidence for a month change or corroboration that a month is correct.

Speaking of Othello, the earliest mention of Atari 2600 Othello in a newspaper ad that I've found so far is from March 20, 1981.

1981y_03m_20d Frederick News Post Friday, March 20, 1981, Frederick, Maryland

(Shipley's ad that mentions Othello, Laser Blast, Tennis, and other games.)
