Deadpool targeting summer release

The High Moon Studios game Deadpool will be coming this summer, according to ads found in recent comic books.


Deadpool, coming from Transformers developer High Moon Studios, has narrowed its release window down to a season. The fourth-wall-breaking "Merc with a Mouth" will be coming to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 sometime this summer.

The release target was spotted in ads in comic books by Deadpool Bugle (via Joystiq) last week. It's still a wide range, but it's significantly shorter than the vague "2013" mention we had before.

Deadpool is known for his self-aware commentary on comic books, being one of the few major comic characters to regularly acknowledge that he's in a work of fiction. This could have some fun applications in a video game, so hopefully High Moon doesn't play his story too straight. Other Marvel characters, like Cable, Domino, and Death, will also be making an appearance.
