Capcom confirmed in a release that Ed will be joining the next season, saying,

“Ed, the young commander, is the next character to join Street Fighter V as part of the Season 2 Character Pass. Previously appearing in the story of Street Fighter IV and Super Street Fighter IV, Ed’s experimental body aged him beyond his years until he was ready for battle. Having been raised by Balrog, his fighting is centered on boxing, but Ed is enhanced by the Psycho Power carried within his genes from M. Bison. Use this power to perform special moves like the ‘Psycho Snatcher’ V-Skill, ‘Psycho Cannon’ V-Trigger and ‘Psycho Barrage’ critical art.”

“Unleash Ed’s Psycho Power when he joins Street Fighter V soon, along with his Story and Premium Battle costumes. During the Capcom Fighters Network Beta taking place on PlayStation 4 and PC on 11th-14th May, Ed and all previously released characters will be playable for all beta participants for the duration of the test.”
