When not playing video games, I like to curl up with a good book. These books just so happen to be full of pictures–and only a few hundred words of dialogue—surrounded by several dozen words of onomatopoeia. Yes, you guessed it: I am an avid comic book reader. So, as I sat down to finally read Thunderbolts #4—I’m catching up after my trip to D.I.C.E. 2013—I couldn’t help but notice a full-page ad talking about everyone’s favorite Merc with a Mouth.

What specifically caught my eye about the ad, though, was the bottom of the page, where it exclaimed that Deadpool’s first solo video game adventure would be hitting this summer. Considering this was the first myself, or anyone else in the office, had heard of any sort of release date for the game, I thought it was news to be shared with the community. Oh, you lucky people you. The word “summer” also came up again with a spattering of new screens released last week over at Marvel.com in regards to the Deadpool game.

The summer is a large period of time, however—lasting from the end of June until the end of September—so although this narrows it down from the ominous “TBD 2013” of other sites or the bulls*** “December 31, 2013” listing of retail stores, we still don’t have a super-solid date. If we look back at previous High Moon Studios releases, however, my money would be on June, since the last title game director Sean Miller worked on was Transformers: Dark of the Moon—and that was a June release. Meaning, if he went straight from one project to the next, he’d have a full two-year dev cycle with Deadpool. It could also be August, though, since that was when the last game from High Moon Studios in general was released (last year’s Transformers: Fall of Cybertron). Of course, until we get a more solid date, anything beyond “summer” is all just hyperbole on my part. Thanks for the info comic books!

Are you excited for the Deadpool game? What other summer titles are you looking forward to? Let us know with your comments below!
