Way was revealed to be on board in a press release written by the fictional mercenary himself.
"Hey suits, listen up 'cause I've got some pretty sweet news to break," it reads. "I, Deadpool, today announced that I've…(ahem…we've)…yes, right…WE'VE decided to make a kick-butt, butt-kicking new video game based on the awesome-ing-ist super hero ever known to man (and woman, if you know what we're sayin') starring yours truly, ME, DEADPOOL.
"I know, I know… I pee'd myself a little with excitement just now too (you call that 'a little?')."
"We weren't actually planning on making a Deadpool game," said High Moon head Peter Della Penna. "But, Deadpool came by the studio one day, said he was taking over, and that if I didn't hire Marvel writer Daniel Way pronto and make the most amazing Deadpool video game, he'd break both of our arms and beat us to death with them.
"I have kids, so we're making the game."
A Deadpool film is in the works with X-Men Origins: Wolverine's Ryan Reynolds attached to reprise the role of the 'Merc with a Mouth'.
The Deadpool game will be released on undisclosed platforms in 2013.
