Not much information was given on the character, other than he represents "the future of the franchise" according to the developers on the livestream. Luke was confirmed for a November release, with more information to come. There is a character named Luke on the official Shadaloo Character Guide website, but it is unknown if this is the same Luke.

Luke was one of three characters highlighted in the Summer Update, with Oro and Akira seeing full reveals and an August 16 release date. Capcom also announced a continuation of its partnership with Epic Games, as Cammy and Guile will join Fortnite on August 8.
