Activision's Deadpool game returns to Steam

Activision and High Moon Studios' Deadpool, based on the Marvel character who will star in his own movie next year, is back on Steam after being delisted from the service more than a year ago.

Like the release of another Activision game this week, Deadpool's return to Steam was unceremonious. Activision did not announce or promote the game's renewed availability on Steam, but we've reached out to the company for information on its return and whether it will also return to PlayStation Network and Xbox Live.

Deadpool was removed from sale digitally alongside a group of other Marvel-licensed Activision games — X-Men: Origins, X-Men: Destiny, X-Men: The Official Game, Spider-Man: Friend or Foe and Spider-Man: Web of Shadows — at the end of 2013.

Ryan Reynolds will portray Deadpool in 20th Century Fox's film adaptation of the comedic anti-hero next year. Footage of Deadpool, which debuted at San Diego Comic-Con last week, leaked from the convention and was quickly pulled by the studio.
