The Xbox avatar lets users create a custom appearance on their dashboard that will be visible to friends and other players as a representation of their Xbox Live activity. However, there has been no way to have the avatar character appear in a wheelchair, but it looks like the option will soon be available.
One fan reached out on Twitter last week to inquire if wheelchairs would ever be a possibility for avatar customization. After others chimed in, and considered launching a petition, Head of Xbox Phil Spencer hopped in the conversation to say a petition would be unnecessary, as wheelchairs were already being looked into. Late Monday night, Mike Ybarra, Director of Program Management for Xbox, shared an image of both male and female avatars using wheelchairs.
@SeamusBlackley Have you considered creating a petition? It’s something is definitely promote on my website/ something people would get with
