Deadpool game in the works by Transformers developer High Moon Studios

San Diego Comic Con has already proven to be chock-full of gaming goodness this year, with release dates, new titles, and other big reveals coming out of the San Diego-based convention, but it looks like the best is yet to come.

Rumors are floating around that High Moon Studios, the team behind Transformers: War for (and the upcoming Fall of) Cybertron, is developing a Deadpool game. Actually, when we say rumors, we mean "it's pretty much official." It hasn't been totally, super-duper confirmed – that's expected to come at a panel later today – but there's a teaser website and some graffiti'd signs around the convention center that make it more than a little likely.

Besides being cool news, there's also a precedent for the game being awesome. Don't forget that Activision publisher an M-rated Wolverine game a few years back that was actually quite badass, so we know the publisher is willing to allow developers to create bloody and bloody good comic book games when the IP allows it – and with Deadpool, the IP totally allows it.

Heck, he could even be voiced by Nolan North without people complaining. North has been the voice of Deadpool for years, appearing as the character in several Activision and Capcom-published Marvel games, so it would make sense for Nathan Drake to put on a red mask and cut faces off.

We're expecting more news soon, so stay tuned for all the Deadpooly goodness you can handle.

    This is just... awesome. Still, I'm going to wait til somebody's played it, and we know what the gameplay is like, before I completely support this. Oh, and if they don't include Weasel, Blind Al, Bea Arthur and chimichangas then its not a proper Deadpool game.

    Looks good, spot on with who Deadpool is. And being High Moon Studios, it could go places.

    See? See, Sega? Superheroes games don't have to be garbage!

    If it comes to PC hopefully it's not a shitty port like War for Cybertron.
  • MAZMAZMAZ - July 15, 2012 6:09 a.m.

    BORRRRRRRRING. just another dmc clone which looks eager to be a flaw.

    Canada ******* eh

    ...I think I'm going to hyperventilate.....dreams really do come true!!!
  • IceBlueKirby - July 14, 2012 9:30 p.m.

    Something tells me this is going to be awesomely absurd.
  • zombi3grim - July 14, 2012 9:07 p.m.

    I dont really know the Dead Pool character as Im not that into comics. He doesnt look like he would sound like that. I always thought he was a more serious character. The trailer made him real snarky and silly. But judging by the general reaction here, he's supposed to be like that.
  • ninjaemperor - July 14, 2012 9:39 p.m.

    Yeah, Deadpool's whole deal is being completely and awesomely insane, he's being portrayed perfectly.
  • BladedFalcon - July 15, 2012 7:59 a.m.

    Deadpool has never been supposed to be serious, actually. And one of the things that stand out the most about the character is the fact that he's completely self aware that he's a comic book character, and constantly breaks the fourth wall and such. So yeah, this trailer actually is pretty spot-on when it comes to what defines the character XD
  • IsaacShadow - July 15, 2012 9:36 a.m.

    True. Lets just hope they make this a Deadpool game and not just a rip off of Devil May Cry. I like Deadpool, I really do, and I just want it to be his game and not just Devil May Cry: Deadpool edition.

    I don't see how hack n' slash with gun mechanics automatically makes it a DMC clone. It's like when everyone declared Warhammer 40K: Space Marine a dumb Gears rip-off. Aside from that being wrong in so many ways, the games are quite different and just happen to feature super-beefy, armored guys violently killing stuff with chainsaw-type weapons. I just hope the game isn't too dependent on the guns but gives you no ammo, forcing you to play 80% of the game kiting around and meleeing thinking, 'Damn, I wish I had some ammo,' like another game from High Moon... On the up side, Pool's character seems spot on, and I'm just about 90% sure he was voiced by none other than Nolan North in the trailer, which is promising. Deadpool is my favorite Marvel character by far; it's high time he had his own badass game. Let's hope there's chimichangas.
  • tjmaster - July 15, 2012 8:23 p.m.

    with Nolan North reprising his role once again
  • FlagrantPilgrim - July 14, 2012 6:22 p.m.

    They seem to have gotten his character spot-on, which is a major plus for me. Hopefully they'll release trailers showing how the game will play.

    The announcement trailer dropped, it's all I've ever wanted and more.
