Could we see G revealed at San Diego Comic-Con for Street Fighter 5? Capcom does like to announce fighting game news at the event

From Ken to MvCI, Capcom seems to always have something at SDCC

Comic-Con International: San Diego, better known as San Diego Comic-Con, has grown well beyond the realm of comic books, cosplay and super heroes to embrace other media like video games, TV shows and film into their enormous show floors and exhibition rooms.

Developers like Capcom and NetherRealm Studios will often times hold special panels where they will show off new characters or gameplay for their titles though brand new games are typically reserved for events like E3 and EVO.

In fact, Capcom has revealed new fighting game characters/ news for the past three-years at their San Diego Comic-Con panels, so more news or announcements appear likely given their previous track record at the big event.

San Diego Comic-Con is just a few weeks away running from July 19th through the 22nd placing it around two months after the initial reveal of Cody for Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition and almost a month after his full release. Two months is the usual time frame between character reveals/ releases for Street Fighter 5 for the past few seasons.

All of this means there is a strong possibility that we will see G officially revealed during San Diego Comic-Con with a new trailer, and then perhaps have him playable at EVO similarly to what they did with Cody and E3 last month.

Capcom's current announcement streak started by initially revealing Ken for Street Fighter 5 back in 2015 along with the beta details for the game before its launch in 2016.
