While we won't see it in the movie, a viral site has revealed the fate of Will Smith's character for Independence Day: Resurgence, which turns out that Captain Steven Hiller died back in 2007.

Now Will Smith comments on the death of Hiller with Yahoo:

“I was working on Suicide Squad during that time. [Independence Day director] Roland [Emmerich] and I had talked about it. The trailer looks really cool. I’m going to be sitting around with tears in my eyes when that one comes out… It was terrible when I found out my character died.” 

Will Smith is currently starring in Concussion, and Suicide Squad hits next August 5th.

IDR Synopsis:

We always knew they were coming back. After INDEPENDENCE DAY redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global spectacle on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction.
