Microsoft says Xbox avatars will soon have wheelchair options

For most Xbox users, making an avatar that looks eerily like you is all part of the fun. But for some, like Twitter user Vonshell Morgan, the avatar builder doesn’t have enough options to “truly reflect them.”

Morgan, who has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair, reached out to other Twitter users to ask Xbox about including avatars in wheelchairs.

After some back and forth, Xbox’s Mike Ybarra responded with a sneak peek of the console’s new wheelchair-rocking avatars, complete with stylish Xbox flags.

Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft’s Xbox division, said the new avatars are “not long off,” and that it is something the company has been looking at for a while.
