Mouthing Off: Deadpool Game Announced

Deadpool, shatterer of skulls, gonads and fourth walls, will be the wisecracking star of a game from Transformers developer High Moon. The absurd violence and self-referential nature of Deadpool has made him a "fan favourite", which often means "popular but not particularly commercially viable". It's pleasing to see him enjoying life beyond the page, although I reckon there's a danger that the game, like the trailer, will be a series of murders, boobs and jokes about murders and boobs that uses irony as a flimsy veil. There's also no guarantee that it'll come to PC, with no platforms announced yet.

If the game does receive a PC port, High Moon almost certainly won't be developing it themselves, with their latest Transformers game being ported by a third party following fan demand.
