The Street Fighter 5 news just keeps coming! Moments ago, Capcom France released an image on Twitter that seems to show a new stage in Street Fighter 5.

This backdrop appears to be Final Fight-themed. Twitter user Pickles put together a quick comparison showing that the stage very likely belongs to Abigail.

As we know, the Final Fight boss character is rumored to be the next Street Fighter 5 Season 2 DLC character. EventHubs user Flowtron -- who has made correct predictions in the past -- claims that Abigail is next in line to join the fight.

Adding to the credibility of this claim, an empty character page recently went live on the official CFN website and had a browser tab that read "ABIGAIL|CHARACTER DATA." Now with this image of a potential Metro City stage in Street Fighter 5, the chances are seeming more likely than ever.

Though Capcom cancelled their EVO 2017 panel -- which was set to take place this morning and had everyone expecting a character reveal -- they assured fans that announcements were still coming this weekend. So far, they have not disappointed, with the Street Fighter 5 Nostalgia costumes and the new CPT content being shown this morning.

The official Street Fighter Twitter account has confirmed that the next character reveal is coming during the EVO 2017 Street Fighter 5 top 8, which begins at 7 p.m. PDT / 10 p.m. EDT on Sunday. In the meantime you can check out the stage and comparison below.
