Activision and High Moon Studios (Transformers: War for Cybertron) have announced that a new game based on Marvel Comics character, Deadpool, is in development.


While no details of the project have been announced yet, a teaser website for the game has been erected, and is scheduled to open completely in a little over four hours. We’ll have more details as they become available.

  • I love Deadpool and will keep my fingers crossed in the hopes it will have the same humor and fourth-wall breaking as the comics. 

  • Sounds like that Deadpool movie isn’t that far off then.

  • SirRichard

    Oh I desperately want this to be good, a Deadpool game could work so well but can also be easily screwed up. Here’s hoping for the best, and if nothing else here’s hoping they don’t overdo breaking the fourth wall.

  • DongT

    i hope it has yellow thought bubbles periodically popping up through the game lol

  • Roberto Armando Iraheta

    It’s cool to see Deadpool getting some love, but I’ll keep my excitement until I see some hard gameplay. I hope they make it play like Devil May Cry. It’s the only way it’d work.

  • AuraGuyChris

    If it has a menu screen, it will be torn out on the spot.

    • Eh? What do you mean by that?

      • heartless141

         Google Deadpool 4th wall.

        • I know about Deadpool breaking the 4th wall (trust me, I know). I just don’t get what this guy means by what he said (and no, Googling “deadpool 4th wall” didn’t help any with that).

          • heartless141

             just deadpool tearing the menu apart for whatever reason? a bit aimless i know, but not totally meaningless

  • Dantis

    Okay, I know that I’m getting a reputation for being negative… But come on, Activision?

    • It’s High Moon Studios, they don’t have a bad record with their Transformers games.

  • Lunar_Outcast

    “Deadpool Game Announced by Activision…”

    Not getting my hopes up. Hopefully the movie will be good, though.

  • Activision…

    • RaikageV

      Exactly what I thought.

    • neocatzon

      Same here.. So, it’s Beenox then?

      EDIT: Oh, High Moon Studios, bad guess.

  • MrKappa

    As lame as Activision is I know that HMS knows how to make a shooter which is obviously what a Deadpool game has to be. Unless they sandbag like they did with Dark of the Moon this game will no doubt be fun.

    • heartless141

      Deadpool and Raiden has really similar arsernals, i hope they would be able to show us something as good as Platinum did.

  • Zonron

    just heard of this from you guys. now im watching the countdown lol

    • Zonron

       so i counted down the last 10 secounts like newyears and got nothing. so i guess it really was new years lol

  • ivanchu77

    A Deadpool game? sounds interes….


    Not interested anymore

    • MrRobbyM

      My thoughts exactly, at first. But Activision has some good games every now and then so I’m not going to write it off just yet.

  • Fidelis

    Hopefully this game is handled by people who actually know the character as opposed to people who just want to further flanderize his zaniness.

    If Joe Kelly was involved in writing the game it’dd be immediate preorder

  •  A Deadpool game… By High Moon Studios?
    I am very excited about this!

  • Carocaro4


  • As much as I want Activision to go die in a pit of snakes, I think High Moon is a really talented developer that has shown they know how to take a much loved franchise (transformers) and do something great with it. So Activision be damned, this could still turn out to be quite the game.

  • PK212

    I’ve always kinda wished HMS would make another Darkwatch game.

    Although, I do love Deadpool so we’ll see how everything turns out.

  • Zonic505

    Despite Activison being behind it, I’m hoping this’ll turn out to be good. I thought he was well executed in U/MvC3, especially for breaking the 4th wall, so I’m hoping his type of humor will work on a game centered around him.

  • Zonron

    the teaser site still hasn’t updated, or is my internet messing with me again?

  • Oni123

    Sweet <3 deadpool 

  • Anime10121

    Cautiously optimistic about how this will actually turn out.  Haven’t cared for ANY of Activisions games since the original Tony Hawks Pro Skater trilogy and Spiderman 1 and 2.  I actually despise them for (my opinion) ruining Spyro the Dragon and Crash Bandicoot (although some rage can be planted at Sony for selling them). 

    Their Marvel games haven’t really been all that great (admittedly has yet to play the new Spidy game though) besides the first two Spidey games and maybe Xmen Ultimate Alliance 1, but still I wanna see how they handle this.  Could be good or could be bad, need to see it in action first.

    Though we’ll probably be hearing more about it at ComiCon.

    Edit: just saw the trailer and while its severely lacking in the gameplay department (the trailer that is), it also had me smiling quite a bit:)
