Updated to Include Yone Lore Video with Reveal/Release Date at End of Video
Updated with new Possible Release Dates
Well it looks like the cat is probably out of the bag, Yone is likely champion 150 for League of Legends. This comes quickly after Lillia was already revealed to be champion 149 on July 7. Since then, there have been a number of leaks that have suggested Yone would be the next champion and that he might be coming soon.

These leaks include things like a Thresh voice line mentioning Yone and Yasuo together, a Spirit Blossom Skin Splash Art and his base skin as well. With all of this evidence and the base skin looking like what was shown in the champion roadmap, it seems like Yone will be the next champion. Now the question becomes, when will he be released?
Spirit Blossom Roadmap
When looking at the Spirit Blossom Festival schedule it seems as though there is quite a bit to be revealed considering Lillia and the other four Spirit Blossom Skins have already been shown. The first three dates have already revealed most of the Spirit Blossom Festival. There are nine confirmed skins with a tenth (presumably Yone) on the way. Also, there is a new story type mode that allows players to earn their tokens.
As for the release or even just the reveal date for Yone, it feels like it will be coming soon. With still one more important date left on the schedule, it seems likely that Friday, July 24 will finally be the date that Yone is revealed. They have been teasing him quite a bit and even shown him in his own video. To end the initial part of the Spirit Blossom Festival, Yone could be revealed.
If Yone is revealed and goes to the PBE on July 24 then that would mean like most champions his release date will be that next patch. Patch 10.16 is scheduled to go out August 5 and according to the Spirit Blossom timeline, he will likely be out Friday.
