Rainbow Six Novel And Video Games

Clancy has passed years ago. However, his death did not stop the continuing stream of Tom Clancy videogames that are being sold in the market. Rainbow Six is the line's longest-running game.

It was first developed as the first novel was still being written, and both were released in 1998. Red Storm Entertainment, the games developer, was even co-founded by Clancy. This is why the game stays true to the novel.

Clark's character is a former Navy SEAL turned operations officer for the Central Intelligence Agency. In Rainbow Six, the character will protect the world from great threats of terrorists.

Clark works with Jack Ryan, a CIA analysis expert. He has been featured in movies such as The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. John Krasinski stars as Jack Ryan in the Amazon series based on the character.

Notably, Clark has been previously played by Liev Schreiber in The Sum of all Fears starring Ben Affleck. Additionally, acclaimed actor Willem Dafoe has also played the character in Clear and Present, starring Harrison Ford as Ryan.
