Fresh off our BLOXcon “world tour,” we’re taking our annual fan convention online for the first time with the Virtual BLOXcon! The event takes place this Saturday at ROBLOX.com/bloxcon, starting at 9 a.m. Pacific Time. We’re hard at work putting the finishing touches on our schedule and setup, so we thought today would be a good time to show you a tentative schedule for the day and share a few photos.
Virtual BLOXcon will consist of three “stages.” The Game Stage will feature contest-winning games, and ROBLOX staff will be playing them with you all day. The World Tour stage will feature recorded content – which we’ll be publishing in increments — from our summer BLOXcon tour. The Livestream Stage will be a live video feed from ROBLOX HQ, running from roughly 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Here is a rough Livestream Stage schedule:

As you can see, there are two Q&A sessions. You’ll be able to submit your question to potentially have it answered live by tweeting @ROBLOX with the #BLOXcon hashtag, or by posting to the BLOXcon forum on ROBLOX.com on Saturday. All of the above times are Pacific; click here to view a handy world clock that will help you figure out when you should tune in.
