Tom Clancy MMO Goes Ahead

Splinter Cell instances in a real-world military espionage MMO?

Just spotted this over on Firing Squad:

CEO Yves Guillemot stated that UbiSoft can now proceed with a MMO game based on the Tom Clancy brand. Guillemot stated that under their previous video game agreement with the techno-thriller author they would have had to pay royalties that would have kept any MMO game based on his name from being made. However now that UbiSoft has a royalty free license on the Tom Clancy brand name, “….we’ve really decided now to go for an MMO on the Clancy name, which is big.”

It seems like there are some really unusual ideas being bounced around for MMOs: APB, a Tom Clancy MMO, a Warhammer 40k MMO, a Fallout MMO… Surely they can’t all be WoW clones?

Related to this Clancy news is the fact that Ubisoft has acquired the rights to slap ol’ Tom’s name on their game boxes forever and ever, after paying out a gigantic lump sum that’s hinted to be in the region of $20m. We’re looking forward to Tom Clancy’s Far Cry 2.
