We are currently in the midst of Street Fighter 5's third season. Sakura, Blanka, Falke, and Cody are all available now, and we'll be seeing G and Sagat follow later this year.

Though it's a little premature, today we're talking Street Fighter 5 Season 4. A new claim from a prominent leaker shares what could be Season 4's DLC character line up.

Vergeben is a name you've probably seen quite a bit lately here on EventHubs. Most recently, this Reddit user made claims about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate before the big E3 2018 reveal, and nearly everything listed ended up being true -- the rest has yet to be seen.

Among those claims, Vergeben said that Ridley would be unveiled as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and revealed at E3, Snake would return, every Super Smash Bros. 4 character would be on the roster, and even leaked the official name of the game shortly before Nintendo's E3 presentation.

In response to a comment on Reddit questioning Vergeben's credibility, the leaker dropped some bits of information about Street Fighter 5 and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. Originally, Vergeben noted that Star-Lord, Ms. Marvel, Green Goblin, Wolverine, Cyclops, Psylocke, Magneto, Storm, Deadpool, Doctor Doom, Daredevil, Asura, Lady, Gill, Rashid, Captain Commando, Nina, Deis, Regina, Gene, Vergil, Akuma, and Apollo Justice would be added to Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite as DLC.

We have seen no signs of new content for Marvel Infinite, and Vergeben now says that support for the game has stopped due to its poor performance. "MvCI support was ended because the game tanked. That's not my fault that DLC plans were scrapped, despite there having actually been developments on them," Vergeben writes.

As for Street Fighter 5, Vergeben claims that Season 4's DLC character roster will consist of Street Fighter 4's C. Viper, Street Fighter 3 Third Strike's Oro, Q, and Necro, Street Fighter Alpha's Sodom, and another character. "Crimson Viper, Necro, Q, Oro, Sodom, and another character are slated to come to SF5, but will be Season 4 last I heard," Vergeben notes.

This isn't the first time we've heard these names dropped for Street Fighter 5. Early last year we heard that these characters would be joining the game in Season 3.

EventHubs user Flowtron, who was known for being very credible and leaked the Season 2 roster with specific details far before they were announced and predicted Season 3's DLC roster, said that Oro, C. Viper, Q and Necro would not be in Season 3 -- which turned out to be true.

Where we left of with these characters were rumors that these fighters would be added to the game this year, for free, outside of Season 3. Based on the release schedule of Season 3's characters so far, that's looking unlikely.

Vergeben has been accurate about some very interesting things so far, but also had some misses along the way. As with any rumors, it's worth taking this information with a grain of salt.

That having been said, the recent Super Smash Bros. Ultimate information from Vergeben that turned out to be true does give his claims some more weight. We could very well be seeing Oro, Necro, C. Viper, Q, and Sodom in Street Fighter 5 Season 4.

Are you hoping these characters come to Street Fighter 5 next year? Let us know in the comments below.
