Tom Clancy, mannen vars böcker och manus Ubisoft haft som förlaga till bland annat Ghost Recon och Splinter Cell, har avlidit, raporterar New York Times. Någon orsak ges inte, men Clancy dog på ett sjukhus i Baltimore och var bara 66 år gammal. Såhär kommenterar Ubisoft saken på sin Facebook-sida:
We are saddened to learn of Tom Clancy's passing and our condolences go out to his family. Tom Clancy was an extraordinary author with a gift for creating detailed, engrossing fictional stories that captivated audiences around the world.
The teams at Ubisoft, especially at the Red Storm studio, are incredibly grateful to have collaborated with and learned from him, and we are humbled by the opportunity to carry on part of his legacy through our properties that bear his name.
