Roblox puts Minecraft and Fortnite in the shade – and hardly anyone notices

Roblox is a phenomenon that can not only keep up with hugely successful online games like Minecraft and Fortnite, but can even put them in the shade. 120 million players worldwide check out Roblox’s servers every month. And the other statistics are also impressive.

The story of Roblox begins in 2003. At that time, a certain David Baszucki wanted to design a digital kit to make it as easy as possible for users to develop their own games and make them available to other gamers. At that time the project was still running under the name “DynaBlocks”.

Today, 17 years later, Roblox’s journey can only be considered an impressive success. As of March 2020, the game’s market value was estimated at $ 4 billion . In May 2020, Roblox was – once again – one of the top five games on mobile devices (3rd place, ahead of Pokémon Go or Candy Crush Saga) and PC (5th place, ahead of World of Warcraft or Fortnite).

The success of Roblox is also noticeable in other figures: 120 million players are supposed to stop by the platform every month. There are now several million games available for download there. The most successful titles have billions of views:

  1. Adopt me! , 7.6 billion views
  2. MeepCity , 5.9 billion views
  3. Jailbreak , 3.7 billion views
  4. Royale high , 3.5 billion views
  5. Murder Mystery 2 , 2.7 billion views
  6. Work at Pizza Place , 2.4 billion views
  7. Welcome to Bloxburg , 2.2 billion hits
  8. Flee the Facility , 1.6 billion views
  9. Prison Life , 1.5 billion views
  10. Super Hero Tycoon , 1.2 billion views

The special thing about Roblox is not only that players here have the possibility to create games in a comparatively simple way and to make them available to others for free. The game “developers” receive a share of the revenues generated by their games (through microtransactions). For many hobby programmers, the end result may not be much more than a nice pocket money. However, there are also some top earners who are said to have earned a high eight-figure sum over the years. A total of over 110 million US dollars have been distributed to the approximately two million content creators so far.

What does it look like: have you tried Roblox before? If so: How are your experiences with the platform and the games offered there? Let us know in the comments!
