In a surprising twist, the world of The Walking Dead is making its way into the Call of Duty universe with the highly anticipated Season 2 of MW3 and Warzone. However, the reveal of the iconic protagonist, Rick Grimes, has sparked some heated discussions, with players roasting the crossover for feeling a little too dated.
As Season 1 of MW3 and Warzone comes to a close, we've witnessed some extraordinary moments, including an epic crossover with The Boys, the integration of Warzone and MW3, and the introduction of Ranked Play (even though it arrived fashionably late in a midseason update).
But hold on to your zombie-slaying weapons, because Season 2 is just around the corner! Activision, in an attempt to ignite the hype train, has released key art for the upcoming season, giving us a glimpse of none other than the legendary Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead.
Now, while Rick's appearance did generate excitement, it also opened the floodgates for some merciless roasting about how dated the crossover feels. It's no secret that The Walking Dead enjoyed immense success during its televised run, starting in 2010 and concluding in 2022. Rumors about The Walking Dead joining the CoD universe have been circulating for quite some time, and now, MW3 Season 2 is set to make those rumors a reality.
To say that the arrival of Rick Grimes in CoD feels a tad dated would be an understatement. After Activision unveiled the crossover, players on MW3's official subreddit wasted no time in expressing their feelings about it. "Crossover so late I might as well expect Walter White to show up sometime," one cunning Reddit user quipped.
But wait, there's more! Michonne, another iconic character from The Walking Dead, is also set to join the fray in Season 2. This inclusion is most likely a strategic move to capitalize on the buzz surrounding the upcoming series, The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live. Some of the comments expressed genuine excitement for the crossover and the show, but the majority of the remarks were brutally honest about how dated this whole thing feels.
"It seems like someone at AMC wrote a blank check to convince these companies that a TWD crossover is still a cool idea," another Reddit user snarked.
Despite the divisive opinions, Season 2 of MW3 and Warzone is still expected to launch on February 7, 2024. So whether you're a die-hard fan of The Walking Dead or just looking for some undead action, get ready to immerse yourself in a world where zombies and soldiers collide.
Prepare to witness the clash of two iconic franchises, as the gritty realism of Call of Duty intertwines with the post-apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead. It might feel a bit nostalgic, but hey, sometimes nostalgia hits us right in the feels. So grab your trusty weapons, team up with friends, and get ready to take on hordes of the undead in a battle for survival.
Remember, in the realm of MW3 and Warzone, alliances will be forged, bullets will fly, and zombies will be dispatched with ruthless precision. Will you rise to the challenge and prove your mettle, or will you succumb to the relentless onslaught of the undead? The choice is yours.
So mark your calendars, set your alarms, and prepare for an explosive Season 2 of MW3 and Warzone. It may be a blast from the past, but it's shaping up to be an unforgettable experience that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Get ready to fight, survive, and maybe, just maybe, uncover the secrets of a world overrun by the walking dead.
