When one of the world’s best-selling novelists decides that he wants to get into video games, people pay attention. That’s what happened in 1996, when the late Tom Clancy – king of the techno-thrillers – co-founded a game studio called Red Storm Entertainment. Two years later, the company would launch the first game in a franchise that is still going strong to this day. That game was Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six.

Eight games, six expansions, some 15 million sales, and more than 16 years later, we’re eagerly looking forward to the release of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, due sometime this year on Xbox One. But while we look forward, let’s also take a look back at this series that virtually defined the tactical first-person shooter.
