Roblox is More Popular than Minecraft

When did that happen?

When you think of the world’s biggest video games, what comes to mind? Probably games like Fortnite, Call of Duty, FIFA, and Minecraft. Which are big, no lie… but you might need to throw another game onto the list. Because it was just announced on the Roblox Blog that the beloved kids' MMO just hit 100 million monthly users, which is 9 million more than Minecraft.

Over the past thirteen years, you, your friends, your friends’ friends, and millions of other people from across the world came to Roblox because you all wanted a place where you could play, create, or let your imagination run wild. You’ve formed groups, development studios, and entire communities of your own. What’s exciting is that many of these friendships are being made between people from different parts of the world, across different languages and devices. We’re truly connecting people on a global scale.

If you didn’t know, Roblox works on a model that promotes user content to a pretty insane degree. Which is impressive, but made more so by the fact that creators can actually earn money from their creations. For example, the creators of the popular game Jailbreak – where you either play a crook trying to escape or the cops trying to stop them -- are now millionaires. In total, Roblox pays out about $30 million a year to similar creators, making it a shockingly supportive company – especially compared to Ubisoft, who still insists on “maybe” paying people for their volunteered creations.

Anyway, if you happen to play Roblox, you’ll be happy to hear that the team has decided to celebrate this achievement with a free accessory: shoulder pads shaped like gold bars, which is kind of a crime against fashion but ya’ll do you, I guess.

So that’s good. Spread the love, such as it were.
