Best selling author Tom Clancy has passed away yesterday night in a hospital in Baltimore. He was only 66.

Clancy was mostly famous for his awesome military thrillers like The Hunt for the Red October,  and Red Storm Rising,  but his name and narrative style appeared also in countless games of series like Rainbow Six, Ghost Recon, Splinter Cell and more. Tom Clancy’s The Division is one of the most anticipated titles for the next generation.

Development studios of the games bearing his name are currently tweeting the following picture in mourning. We join them in extending our best condolences to his family, friends and all those that loved him.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
