Roblox, the free-to-play game-building title that houses more than 50 million user-created game spaces, could be expanding beyond its current home on PC and Xbox consoles.

Speaking during the Roblox Corporation’s Q1 2021 earnings call, CEO and co-founder Dave Baszucki said that “Switch, PlayStation” and “Quest” (as in, Oculus Quest) all “make perfect sense for Roblox”.

Comparing the expansion to the boom in smartphone applications once pinch-to-zoom was established, Baszucki said:

“We have the same vision for the immersive 3D multiplayer cloud stuff of the metaverse in that we believe this should be accessible on all devices, both from viewing as well as interaction. And we've really innovated around this on phone tablet, computer, and Xbox console, showing that developers can create content that when pushed to our cloud, runs on all of these devices as well as auto translates into multiple languages.”

They are now a publicly traded company so they got to get that game on all platforms now. Pick up that stock if you haven't already. I am making a killing on it.

Roblox isn't already on consoles??

I feel like you could tell me any truth or lie about Roblox and I would be like, "Oh, that's that thing that's valued at 5½X the cost of Marvel and Lucasfilm combined? Yeah, guess I could believe that..."
