After several leaks and much speculation, it has now been confirmed that a Rick Grimes Operator skin is coming to MW3 Season 2 in a The Walking Dead crossover!
Much like The Boys crossover with MW3 in Season 1 Reloaded, Season 2’s major crossover event is set to coincide with the release of The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live.
It’s the much-anticipated spinoff of AMC’s The Walking Dead, starring two beloved characters from the series. Fans will be glad to know that both Rick Grimes and Michonne from the show will be making an appearance in MW3!
There is currently no official release date for the Rick Grimes Operator skin in MW3 and Warzone.
We expect it to release alongside the start of the crossover with The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live. The crossover itself should drop sometime after the launch of Season 2 on February 7, 2024.
The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live’s first episode will air on February 25, 2024. As the upcoming crossover event is set to promote the release of the show, we reckon Rick Grimes will be available sometime before this air date.
However, based on MW3’s previous track record with crossover events, fans may not have to wait too long until they get their hands on Rick Grimes. For example, the first crossover in MW3 with Amazon’s The Boys kicked off on day one of Season 1 Reloaded’s release.
Going by this, Rick Grimes may very well drop as soon as Season 2 launches on February 7! We’ll keep our eyes peeled and update this article accordingly.
Rick Grimes in MW3
A Rick Grimes Operator skin is coming to MW3 and Warzone in a new crossover event in Season 2.
The official Call of Duty Twitter/X page confirmed this in a recent post:
As you can see, Rick Grimes appears in a flashy key art image to promote Season 2 of MW3 and Warzone.
It will mark MW3’s second major crossover event, tying into the release of The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live TV show at the end of February.
It’s currently unclear if Rick Grimes will be a Battle Pass unlock or as part of an Operator bundle you can purchase in the store with COD points.
Michonne Confirmed for MW3
In addition to Rick Grimes, the beloved Michonne character from The Walking Dead and the upcoming The Ones Who Live spinoff will also make an appearance in Season 2 of MW3!
The official Call of Duty Twitter/X page confirmed that both Rick and Michonne are coming to MW3 Season 2:
The recreation of the iconic The Walking Dead opening credits and theme was also a nice touch!
Having both Rick Grimes and Michonne skins is particularly befitting for the popular Zombies game mode. Here’s hoping there will be some special The Walking Dead-themed Zombies content on the way for Season 2 as well. Fingers crossed!
