Founded by David Baszucki and Erik Cassel in 2004 and launched in September 2006, Roblox is an online-based gaming platform that allows its users to either create games and enjoy with friends or play games without creating.
In its initial phase of launch, it struggled to gain the attention and interest of the online game audience, but today it has sunk its root deep into the online game industry, raking in millions of revenue monthly, quarterly, and yearly.
In April 2021, Roblox amassed a mouth-gaping 202 million monthly active users, an increase from the 146 million it was in 2020. However, the platform has recorded its highest growth in 2020, amounting to 80 million users as of December 2020, as against 113 million it left off in 2019.
The surge in the number of users was linked to the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown. Kids and adults, too, resorted to online activities to keep their minds active by interacting with one another. Therefore, amongst other online games platforms, Roblox recorded a significant increase in its users during this period.
In the United States, it is estimated that 3 out of every 4 children between the ages of 9 and 12 play Roblox, subsequently helping game creators generate passive income. Some creators have made almost half a million dollars, and that’s enough to set up a team of game creators to generate more income.
