The fan-favorite characters from the series, Rick Grimes and Michonne also appear in the trailer, confirming that the popular characters will be available as playable operators in the game with Season 2 and also features Vladimir Makarov from the game.

This confirmation from Activision comes following multiple leaks and rumors suggesting that Call of Duty will be collaborating with The Walking Dead and bringing Rick Grimes and Michonne as operators. Moreover, the addition of both Rick and Michonne could also mean that more characters from the series could be seen in the game as there is no lack of iconic characters, and if lucky, the players might even get to see Negan Smith or Norman Reedus’ Daryl Dixon.

The main reason behind Rick and Michonne coming to the game as part of the crossover could be the upcoming spin-off The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live. The spin-off will follow Michonne on her journey to look for Rick after he disappeared from the main show in the ninth season. The first episode of The Ones Who Live is set to air on February 25, 2024, on AMC.
