The ultimate sell out – Tom Clancy sells his name
Weird news for a holiday Friday. Tom Clancy who we have all heard of through the Ubisoft army games has now sold the rights to his name to Ubisoft.
Now they can slap his name on anything they want without paying him royalties or getting him to be a part of the design process.
To me this just means that I can no longer be assured that a Tom Clancy game is going to be any good.
The amount of money that has changed hands has not been disclosed but I can only imagine that it must be a hell of a lot to make someone sell there name.
