You've probably heard of Tom Clancy, as he's a best-selling author, but most gamers would know him thanks to his work on game franchises like Ghost Recon and Splinter Cell. Clancy died last night in hospital.

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.
