In a recent follow-up to a conference call, the CEO of Ubisoft revealed that the company would be branching out into other territories with its IP, including Tom Clancy. With the end-of-year release of the voice-controlled RTS EndWar
, Ubisoft does seem intent on moving Clancy games out of simply the shooter genres and the just announced Tom Clancy MMO seems to continue the trend. Nothing is known about the game at this time, other than it is being worked on and that it has the rather large budget of 50 million dollars. But with many companies with thier own online games searching for alternative methods of revenue
, and with no MMOs that have truly broken into the console mass market, any game such as this has it's work cut out for it.
