Ubisoft announced last week that it acquired full rights to the Clancy brand/name free of all future royalty payments. Arstechnica reports that Ubisoft is working on developing a Clancy branded MMO.
It seems like MMOs are a hot thing, but very rarely do these products take off. Would such a niché property do well in the MMO category? I’ve always seen GTA as a no-brainer, but Rockstar North has gone on record (EGM last month) saying that a GTA MMO wouldn’t make sense right now. But, I’ve never thought of any Clancy game as an MMO as much as I love them. Rainbow Six Online? Can’t see it.
