If you’re a hardcore Deadpool fan, you might want to sit down for this. Due to pesky licensing issues, Activision’s 2013 Deadpool video game is going to be permanently removed from all digital storefronts on November 16. So if you don’t buy a digital copy by then, you’ll only be able to purchase the game in the form of secondhand physical editions. With Deadpool being more popular than ever right now, this news certainly comes as a blow in the gut.
Made for an estimated budget of $100 million, Deadpool was developed by High Moon Studios, and is one of a multitude of Marvel video games to have been awarded an M-rating from the ESRB, resulting in severed limbs, decapitations, and F-bombs flying everywhere you look. In addition to the Merc with a Mouth, Marvel regulars Wolverine, Cable, Rogue, Psylocke, and even Death herself all made appearances.
The digital storefronts on which the game is currently available are listed below. If you want to add Deadpool to your digital collection, I really cannot stress the urgency of purchasing a copy within the next 24 hours.
