With the launch of Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition, Capcom has seemingly decided to forgo the tradition of surprise announcements and instead give fans some lead up and additional teasers before new characters are ultimately revealed, and Cody is no exception.

Street Fighter changed their Twitter account art yesterday to tease Cody breaking through the wall like his introduction from the Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition opening cinematic meaning his full reveal would be coming in the near future, and now it appears we know when.

Today, their account posted a new tweet with an animated GIF of the mayor of Metro City, Mike Haggar, at his desk with the text "May 27 Combo Breaker Top 8" which in all likelyhood means that Cody will be revealed during the finals of the SF5:AE tournament at Combo Breaker this weekend.

The text of the tweet also says "Your appointment with the mayor has been booked for May 27" lending credence to the speculation that Cody is the new mayor of Metro City following in the footsteps of his friend and fellow Final Fight character, Mike Haggar.

Given the release pattern of previous Street Fighter 5 DLC characters, we could see a release for Cody as soon as next Tuesday, May 29th, but Capcom could also easily break that cycle.

You can take a look at the tweet below. We also currently have a poll open asking what your hopes and expectations are regarding Cody's knife returning with his new political attire.
