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.
