Street Fighter 5's next DLC character reveal might be just around the corner. The official Street Fighter Twitter page has changed their profile picture to that of a promotional image that is very clearly hinting at Cody.

As we know, this is par for the course from Capcom when a new character reveal is inbound. Based on the order of the Street Fighter 5 Season 3 line up, Cody is next on the docket to be revealed.

Not only has the profile picture on the Street Fighter Twitter account been changed, but the full image was shared as its own tweet (which you can see below). We see the Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition logo in front of a brick wall with a large hole punched through it.

One of Cody's trademarks is breaking through a brick wall, which comes from his life as a criminal stemming back to the Street Fighter Alpha series. In the Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition opening cinematic we see a new, more suave Cody burst through a brick wall as well, which is what this teaser image is referencing.

Street Fighter 5's Cody trades the prisoner outfit for a suit and tie, leaving the handcuffs behind. This, along with some rumors, have led fans to believe that Cody has taken on the role of the new mayor of Metro City.

Further contributing to the mayor theory is Cody's Story Mode costume, which is a direct reference to the actual mayor of Metro City -- Final Fight's Mike Haggar. With it, we see Cody wearing the same single-strapped overall-esque outfit Haggar wears, complete with being shirtless.

Considering this teaser is coming shortly before the start of Combo Breaker 2018 in Chicago this weekend -- which happens to be the next stop on the Capcom Pro Tour -- we could be seeing a gameplay trailer showcased at the event.

Cody is the fourth DLC character in Street Fighter 5 Season 3. He has been preceded by Sakura, Blanka, and newcomer Falke, and will be followed by another newbie, G, as well as series mainstay Sagat.

You can gain access to all six of Season 3's DLC fighters by purchasing this year's Character Pass. For $29.99 you'll receive all of the aforementioned characters (as they are released), as well as each of their Premium Battle costumes and colors 3-10 for their default and Premium Battle costumes.
