In what can only be described as a major milestone for the global gaming community, Roblox Corporation has announced the impending arrival of their iconic platform on PlayStation. The long-awaited debut is set for October 10 on the PS4, with the PS5 enthusiasts having the opportunity to dive in via backwards compatibility.
Starting as a PC-exclusive in 2006, Roblox made its mark in the mobile gaming world with ports to iOS in 2012 and Android in 2014. The platform’s universe expanded further when it was ushered into the console space with an Xbox One release in 2015, which is still accessible to players on the Xbox Series X/S. But amidst this exponential growth, PlayStation and Nintendo console aficionados were kept waiting in anticipation.
What makes this announcement even more electrifying is Roblox’s dedication to cross-platform support. Whether you’re entrenched in the world of PC gaming, relishing the mobility of gaming on-the-go, rooted in the Xbox universe, or soon, diving in on PlayStation, Roblox promises a seamless experience. This commitment ensures that the Roblox universe remains interconnected, allowing players from diverse platforms to engage with one another effortlessly.
In their proclamation at the Roblox Developer Conference in San Francisco, Roblox emphasized the gravity of this release: “At long last… more than 150 million console owners across PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 will be able to access the full catalog of Roblox experiences.” It’s not just a win for Roblox Corporation, but for every creator, developer, and player who now has a more expansive playground.
