The New York Times has confirmed the news unfortunately, directly from Clancy's publisher. Clancy back in 1996 helped create a game development studio called Red Storm Entertainment, where a bunch of games were made. The developer was scooped up by Ubisoft, who took the best franchises and continued making them under Clancy's name, such as Splinter Cell.
