VG247:Author and co-founder for video game developer Red Storm Entertainment Tom Clancy passed away today in a Baltimore hospital at age 66.
Rip, loved rainbow six.
The early Rainbow/Ghost Recon/Splinter cell games were pure quality...R.I.P MR Clancy
Rip :(. Why is it that the good ones go while the bad ones stay?
Oh no such tragic, he was a great author on Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon and so forth. R.I.P Tom, my sympathy goes out to your family. God rest your soul
He didn't write Splinter Cell or Ghost Recon
or end war or H.A.W.X. or the division
Whilst he may not of had much involvement in the later games his books were still a blast to read. RIP good sir.
The later games still wouldn't have come to be without him. Sucks. I liked his novels, they're not the kind of thing I would choose to read but I respected them for what they were and still found them enjoyable. Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon though, love those games!
Wow... God bless & RIP
T_T oh-oh my god. my heart is breaking! I've read a lot of his stories including the Hunt for Red October and Power Plays! Oh God... RIP Mister Clancy Sir! you have been a part of my life for a time! Thank you, also, for giving us your awesome games.. for introducing us to Sam Fisher. We will miss you!
Miss you old man.
Rainbow Six (1998) was the first game I played back then from Tom Clancy...those memories. R.I.P.
Man that's a damn shame. I love the Jack Ryan novels. A pity Ben Affleck killed that movie franchise. Tom could explain to you how a faulty valve would start a chain reaction causing a nuclear submarine to sink and you could actually follow what he was saying, and therefore believe it. The guy seemed to know too much, he must have been an incredible researcher. Rip
Ben Affleck didn't actually kill the franchise. Their is a new Jack Ryan movie coming out this year with Chris Pine as jack Ryan. Maybe it will be good enough to get some of the other books adapted. Frankly I still want to see a R rated adaptation of Without Remorse.
Amazing individual ,R.I.P.
R.I.P all of his games were apart of my childhood.
Damn, sorry to see you go. Rest in peace sir. You will be missed.
Dammit. I only read A Clear and Present Danger again the other day. And not to mention he was involved in the creation of Rogue Spear, one of the best tactical shooters of all time.
This sucks. Loved his books so much. RIP.
Lower the flag to half mast, What a legacy that man has left behind
