Early in the Shadowlands datamining efforts, strings relating to gamepad support was discovered.
It looked as if Blizzard had added functions to assign keybinds to various controllers.
A recent blue post on the WoW forums has shed some more light on the subject.
That’s not exactly the intention here.
For a long time, we’ve seen a small number of players turn to 3rd party addons, such as Console Port, in order to work through certain accessibility issues.
We always want to make WoW more widely accessible, if possible, so in Shadowlands, we’re attempting to add some support for keybinds, camera, and turning a character on controllers such as the Xbox Adaptive Controller.
We’re glad that the community has felt empowered to make addons tailored to specific needs like this, and we’re going to continue to encourage that as best we can.
