Roblox, the “game making game”, is probably one of the biggest hits of the last decade despite the fact that it is very little known among the regular public. The reason: it is a phenomenon among children, since more than half of its 200 million monthly users are under the age of 13, a whole market that is not in competition with GTA V or other adult hits. It debuted in 2006 on PC and has grown little by little, but surely, until it reached iOS, Android and Xbox One -to the latter in 2005-, and I may soon add Sony and Nintendo consoles.
During the financial report for the first quarter of 2021 the co-founder and CEO of the company, Dave Baszucki, mentioned that “Switch, PlayStation and Quest, all these platforms make perfect sense for Roblox”, pointing not only to its expansion on more platforms but also on Oculus virtual reality. This free title will thus benefit from the millions of users of Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PS5; It could also be specifically adapted to Xbox Series X | S, as it currently works on this platform through backward compatibility.
