Roblox is a platform where game developers and gamers can enjoy their time. There are numerous different things to experience in Roblox such as events, games, and activities. The platform currently has more than 65.5 million users, according to the company’s official statistics. On Friday, Roblox hosted its annual Roblox Developers Conference (RDC) 2023 event. In this event, Roblox’s CEO David Baszucki revealed new features coming to Roblox, including dating, voice calling, and more. Along with that, Baszucki answered an eager question – Will Roblox be available to play on PS4 and PS5? Let’s find out!
When Is Roblox Coming on PS4 and PS5?
Roblox is officially available on PlayStation. As we predicted the launch to be around early October of 2023, the launch is here. The speculation started during the earnings call in August, Baszucki expressed how Roblox wants to explore more platforms and be available to users globally.
Answering a press question regarding Roblox availability on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation consoles, Baszucki said, “We of course have our eyes on those platforms, and stay tuned.” At RDC 2023 in September, the company officially confirmed that Roblox will launch on PS4 and PS5 in October 2023 and now Playstation has released an official tweet on X (formerly Twitter). Roblox is also officially listed on the PlayStation store completely for free. Find the official tweet below:
Roblox initially launched on Windows in 2006 and has found its way to various other platforms since then. Roblox is already available on Android, iOS, and Xbox One. Back in 2022, Roblox job listings hinted at the company looking to hire people for PlayStation-related roles. The description for the job listing revealed that the PlayStation software engineer will be tasked with building and supporting the Roblox game engine on PlayStation consoles.
With the official release, PS5 and PS4 users can “access the full catalog of Roblox experiences” on their consoles. This means you can log in and start playing your favorite games like Blox Fruits or Bad Business whenever Roblox is available on the PlayStation consoles. Just head over to the PlayStation store and get Roblox now for free.
Is Roblox Coming to Nintendo Switch?
On the other hand, Roblox hit a million downloads on the Meta Quest VR headset after it was launched as a ‘public beta’ earlier this year. It will be officially available on the Meta Quest later this September. But, what about the Nintendo Switch?
Speaking of a potential Nintendo Switch release, a Roblox spokesperson (via The Verge) mentioned there are no “imminent plans” to make their popular social and gaming app available on Nintendo Switch. However, the spokesperson added that they want Roblox to be available on all the platforms, so a future release is not out of the question. On stage at RDC 2023, Baszucki teased the same saying that Roblox will expand to more places, so stay tuned.
