Formed back in 2005 and growing significantly over the past few years, Roblox now boasts over 48 million monthly users across all of its platforms (the game can be accessed on PC, mobile, VR, and console), with most of its demographics being made up of children ages six to 16. The game has seen activity peak at one million concurrent players and has paid out $9.2 million to community creators.
Roblox just signed a deal to secure $92 million in additional investment to develop the game even more and “strengthen the balance sheet.” One of the investing partners released a statement about the deal, saying, “Roblox’s growth over the past two years has been one of the best-kept secrets in the industry. They’re experiencing engagement and audience numbers that rival some of the world’s biggest gaming and entertainment companies, and we see the trajectory continuing to accelerate. This is an exciting time to come on board.”
