About a week ago, it was reported that Arc System Works was collaborating with IGN in lieu of a Guilty Gear Strive announcement. That announcement is still set to go live on November 21, 2022 — tomorrow.
Since it’s been over three months since Bridget of Season 2 was released, there were a lot of reasons to speculate that the next Season 2 character could be announced very soon. However, we now have confirmation that Arc System Works and IGN do in fact intend to announce the second fighter of the Season Pass 2 for Guilty Gear Strive during this scheduled event.
On YouTube, a video titled “IGN Live Presents Guilty Gear Strive New Character Reveal” has been scheduled for November 21, 2022 at 4:00 p.m. ET / 7:00 p.m. PT. This appears to be a live stream event in which the next character is slated to be revealed to the public.
“Join IGN’s Mitchell Saltzman for an exclusive reveal of the newest character update for Guilty Gear Strive,” says the description of the video. “Mitchell, will be joined by Riku Ozawa, eSports manager at Arc System Works, and Ken Miyauchi, producer on Guilty Gear Strive for a hands on demo and moveset breakdown. Guilty Gear fans, you won’t want to miss this!”

Following this character’s release, the next two combatants for the Season Pass 2 aren’t slated to be released until 2023. This could end up being the last reveal for Guilty Gear Strive for the rest of the year.
The Guilty Gear Strive Season Pass 2 is currently priced at $24.99. With it, players can acquire Bridget, the character that’s getting announced tomorrow, and the remaining two fighters that will be revealed at some point in 2023.
