Pressed about whether non-binary characters could be made, Tomaszkiewicz continued: "Or nonbinary". "It's not me coding personally or painting something, it's the super-talented folks that chose to join us, and I want to make sure they feel taken care of and respected".

Keanu Reeves - one of the latest Hollywood superstars to lend his impart, face and efficiency to a video sport personality - says gaming doesn't need legitimising.
