Games Industry.biz said:Research conducted by Newzoo shows that gamers want publishers to take an "active stance" on societal issues
Newzoo's latest Gamer Sentiment Study on diversity and inclusion showed how important themes like inclusion and diversity are to players.
54% of US players said that diversity is important in game characters, with 47% adding that they avoided playing a game in the past because they felt it wasn't made for them. The results were a bit lower in the UK, with 47% of the respondents feeling that diverse characters are important, and 41% having avoided a game not made for them.
