Xbox will soon allow users to add wheelchair avatars to their profiles.
Xbox’s Phil Spencer has confirmed that Microsoft is looking into adding avatars with wheelchairs very soon. While there is no date announced for this new avatar, many believe that it may be included with the September update for Xbox Play Anywhere.

The picture also shows off a crisper look to the avatars in general which means there may be an update to avatars as a whole.
Xbox continues to make changes to appeal to gamer and possibly regain some gamers that left for PlayStation. This seems like a step in the right direction.
