Happy birthday, Roblox.

It’s been thirteen years since we set out on our mission to bring the world together through play. Every single day, all across the platform, our community makes that dream come true in ways we couldn’t have imagined. This is by far the biggest year Robox has ever had, and it’s all thanks to you.

Just in the past month, Roblox hit 100 million monthly active users. We’ve had seven games reach a hundred thousand concurrent players and four surpass a billion total plays. More and more of your favorite experiences are being localized into Spanish, German, French, Korean, and Chinese, allowing creators to share moments that last a lifetime with players around the world. Creativity and play are universal, and seeing amazing games find audiences far and wide is indescribably rewarding. 

There’s never been a more exciting time to be a part of Roblox for players and creators alike. We’re committing fully to our vision of not just being powered by imagination, but empowering imaginations around the world. This means the beginning of an even more user-driven future, including the recent introduction of the first user-generated items, user-designed avatar bundles, and live events that put the spotlight on Roblox’s most exciting experiences. The power to inspire and change the world is in your hands…and we, for one, cannot wait to see what you do with it. This is your celebration as much as it is ours. On that note, we wanted to share a few birthday wishes from some of our community members.

Anniversary Items

We brought gifts! These anniversary items are available for everyone; wear them with pride as we go forth into that ever-brighter tomorrow. They’ll be in the Catalog for the next two weeks, so grab them now.
