MMGN: Tom Clancy passed away today aged 66. The best-selling author left an irreplaceable mark on the gaming industry that will see his name live on anchoring games such as The Division.
In 1996 Clancy co-founded developer Red Storm Entertainment. Its first game was Tom Clancy's Politika, likened to Risk, for PC before Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six proved their worth in 1998.
But that's not where games began for the celebrated storyteller. Clancy’s first foray into video games was all the way back in 1987 when his book The Hunt for Red October was made into a submarine simulation game for the Apple II and Commodore 64. Another version was made three years later to coincide with the movie.
