I wonder if Ubi will drop the "Tom Clancy's" from their games like Codemasters did back when Colin died.
They still used Colin McRae for Dirt 2, just not in North America. I'm sure that had more to do with a general lack of name recognition than anything. And Dirt used real world racers and events; those are things that you can't attribute to Colin McRae. The Clancy games are based on a fiction created by Tom Clancy. They would keep using that branding the same way that Robert Ludlum's name is still attached to books set in the worlds he created
