Rick and Morty are coming to Rainbow Six Siege.
Ubisoft announced the crossover yesterday, which introduces a Pickle Rick and Gromflomites inspired bundle to the game.
The crossover, which was announced via an elaborate trailer, showcases the new cosmetic skins which are based on a season three episode of Adult Swim’s sci-fi series Rick and Morty, where Rick decides to turn himself into a pickle to avoid attending family therapy - thus becoming Pickle Rick - and a recurring species of the series; the Gromflomites.
The Smoke Pickle Rick Bundle features the now-iconic Pickle Rick Rat suit and headgear, which Rick fashions out of things found in the sewer in the episode, as well as his famous Portal Gun as an attachment, weapon skin, and even a Pickle Rick charm.
As for the Gromflomites Sledge Bundle, fans can look forward to suiting up in a Gromflomite uniform and headgear which were designed after the insect-looking space lifeforms. This bundle also includes a Federation Defense attachment skin, weapon skin for Sledge’s M590A1, and a Seal Team Rick charm - as featured in the season three episode of the show The Rickshank Rickdemption.

I'M RAINBOW RICK!!" as well as the FACEIT Rainbow Six account making a play on the famous Rick and Morty IQ meme.
