Activision has officially announced Season 2 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III (MW3) and Warzone. The company has also confirmed that Rick Grimes will make his Call of Duty debut as an operator in the new season.

Season 2 kicks off on 7th February and is headlined by the return of the Fortune’s Keep map in Resurgence. The season will also feature a crossover with AMC’s The Walking Dead to promote new spin-off The Ones Who Live.

Along with Rick, The Walking Dead‘s sword-wielding character Michonne will be included in MW3 and Warzone‘s new season as part of a Call of Duty store operator bundle.

In addition to the existing and disappointingly under-supported MW3 Zombies mode (MWZ), Season 2 will introduce a new zombie-infested game mode called Hordepoint.

Furthermore, time-limited Zombie Nest contracts and seven Zombies-inspired power-ups will be added to Warzone.

So, with The Walking Dead and Call of Duty crossing over very soon, let’s take a look at the Rick Grimes operator release date.

Unlike Michonne (who players will have to purchase via the Call of Duty store), Rick will be included in the Season 2 Battle Pass.

That means any player who purchases the Battle Pass in Season 2 will instantly unlock Rick Grimes (along with new operator Kate Laswell).

Therefore, players who want the Rick Grimes operator in Call of Duty will need to pay 1,100 COD Points to buy the Battle Pass.
