Epic Games' latest Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 7 Twitter teaser includes a few references to the hit television series, Rick & Morty.

As gamers prepare for the launch of Season 7 early on Tuesday, June 8, publisher Epic Games has been releasing short teasers via the official Fortnite Twitter page. These typically consist of a looping clip containing a traditional UFO "tractor beam" with a collection of items caught in its rays. The most recent of these, posted in the morning hours of Monday, June 7, has three items known in association with the television show, Rick & Morty.

Of these items, the most notable is the tiny robot in the very middle of the screen. That's Butterbot, a robot whose entire existence is only meant to bring other characters butter. Fans should remember this little dinner table companion from its appearance in the first season and its dismal reaction to the revelation behind why it was created.

If its construction wasn't a big enough tip-off, the stick of butter it's holding should be enough. The text in the associated tweet calls it "bone modification liquid" which could be a reference to the mineral, calcium, found in most dairy products. Calcium is vital to maintaining the strength and health of human bones.

So far, however, Epic has yet to confirm or reveal any other information concerning a possible crossover between Fortnite and Rick & Morty.

Fortunately, fan's won't have to wait very long to learn more about what Season 7 has to offer. Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 7 launches early on Tuesday, June 8.
