Roblox Corporation, a company behind the popular Roblox game, has announced that it currently hosts more than 100 million active users. If you have never heard about Roblox, it’s a very popular digital playground where players can design their own games and play a wide variety of modes created by other users. Essentially, Roblox is a platform that hosts user-created games and virtual worlds covering a wide variety of genres and is somewhat similar to Minecraft.
100 million active players put Roblox above Minecraft. The latest number of active users from Microsoft was released back in March. Back then, Microsoft said that Minecraft boasts 91 million active users, so as of now, Roblox is more popular than its spiritual successor. However, it’s worth mentioning that unlike Minecraft, Roblox is a free-to-play game.
In a press release, David Baszucki, the CEO of Roblox Corporation said that the game has come a long way since its initial release in 2006:
“Roblox began with just 100 players and a handful of creators who inspired one another, unlocking this groundswell of creativity, collaboration, and imagination that continues to grow.”
Roblox wasn’t very popular at first. Only after the release of Minecraft, Roblox started gaining attention from players looking for an alternative for the popular game. If you’ve never tried Roblox, we kindly recommend it since it’s completely free.
