Wasn't a fan.
Anyway was the guy involved in games that had his name on them? I have no idea.
Here's your answer
32 games in total from what I'm seeing, first one in 1996 (SSN) and the last in 2010 (HAWX 2)
Sad news. I wonder what will happen to his works now
sorry to say this but I don't really get why they have to put "Tom Clancy's" in every work related, even in video games.
It can be just "Splinter Cell", or "Rainbow Six"
It falls to his estate/heirs. I don't know how much Ubisoft owns of the Tom Clancy titles. What happens to them will ultimately be decided between the developer, publisher, and his estate.
Yes, they had his name and was to some extent made by a company he co-founded, but I wondered if he had something to do with the games themselves. Writing and general consulting would be closest I assume, and I wonder if he did any of that.
That's a shame. He was one of my father's favorite authors.
yeah me too, that doesn't answer the question at all.
I love reading his books I still have a huge collection of them Ghost Recon was a good series till Ubisoft put it in the dumpster by lying and ignoring feedback/suggestions from its fan base for GRAW 1&2.
Its a sad day for Ghost Recon fans (& also Harrison Ford)
I read alot of his action books on vacation (thats the only time i read ), and saw a lot of the games. sad to see him go.
Indeed, a very sad day. I read and still have every one of his books, and most of the games with his name were licensed by him, and were many times loosely based on his written "universe."
Fan of his books.
In order to market to (older) people who were fans of his military fiction and the movies like Red October not just gamers.
66 is pretty young.
The Hunt for Red October comes to my mind as well, and also Rainbow Six
RIP Tom Clancy
No more books for me to read on long flights
I read like every (real novel) he wrote
Or it was just a stipulation in the contract since those are 'his' names of movies/books.
The first Ghost Recon is still my favorite military shooter to this day.
I loved those! I still have all the original Ghost Recon series! I've been too lazy to install them again to see if they will play on widescreen monitors. Anyone know if they will?
Yes ok but it still comes down to the same thing regardless of who's getting paid exactly.
I read almost all of his books during down time from my back injury and it was really formulaic after awhile, but I think of his original books, Red Storm Rising was a standout. Of his later novels, I enjoyed Rainbow Six the most.
Separate names with a comma.
