Microsoft Announces Wheelchair Avatars to be Included for Xbox Live.


Microsoft has officially announced a cool new feature for disabled Xbox gamers. They will now be able to use wheelchair avatars eventually when an upcoming firmware update launches.

Mike Ybarra Partner Director of Program Management for the Xbox and Windows Platform posted an image regarding the wheelchair avatars which was essentially showcasing options available to either use a Male or a Female avatar.

Parents of disable children and gamers have been launching petitions over the past few years trying to get better representation for disabled people around the world, glad to know it’s finally happening.

A release window for the new Xbox One firmware update hasn’t been mentioned so far but do expect it sometime before or during August when Microsoft hopefully releases the Xbox One S
