They recently went on a full on "inclusive" spree after several negative reports about them.
That includes no more evil races because orcs were a stand in for black people, (or Asians, people are not sure which, but it has to be racist) and you can't have them be always evil. They also started to put warning labels in all their older books sold online that they might trigger someone. And in their newest book which represents their vision for the future of the brand you can freely swap ability adjustments from races because its racist that people are defined by their biology.

Ah, gotcha. They got 'woke'. My angtsy teenage self would be sad, i really lived the half-orc ghetto dream in the original BGs.
