Rumor: Sagat and Sakura headed to SF5, Oro, Viper, Necro and Q 'won't make it to Season 3' says reliable EventHubs user, Flowtron

More unofficial news on the Street Fighter 5 front today as one of our users here on EventHubs has allegedly leaked more information about the game's upcoming DLC characters.

Back in late May, a reader by the name of Flowtron claimed to leak the identities of the remaining Season 2 characters.

They listed them as Abigail, who is looking extremely likely right now, Menat and Zeku. While we're waiting to see if these come to fruition, we do know that the EH user correctly called Ed before his release, and even went as far as to explain that he would be bigger and buffer than in his Story Mode appearance.

Flowtron has now made references to Season 3 characters for SF5, claiming that both Sagat and Sakura will become part of the cast, though they will be very much unlike their respective iterations from Street Fighter 4.

Furthermore, the info leaker has stated that Oro, C. Viper, Q and Necro will not be coming in the game's third season.

You'll see the direct comments after the jump below.

We take all of this with a grain of salt, but as stated above, should Abigail, Menat and Zeku turn out to be the remaining fighters in Season 2, Flowtron's street credit will only elevate. Thus far, we haven't seen any of their claims come back false.

What do you think of this potential news? Are you hoping it is indeed the case? Feel free to chime in with your thoughts and reactions in the comments.

Thank you to Zephyrus for the tip.
