Roblox, a social platform with more than 48 million monthly active players and 22 million online games, reached 1.7 million game creators. The number marks an increase of more than two times the amount of game creators on the platform from this time last year.
Roblox has paid some creators $50,000 a month for games that are getting hundreds of millions of plays. The creators build levels on Roblox Studio, a development engine, that allows them to build 3-D multiplayer games and experiences using a library of industry-standard tools and community-created assets. Working independently or as a team, developers can publish their creations with a single click via the Roblox cloud, allowing them to instantly engage with an international audience of over 48 million monthly active players.
Since its debut in 2006, Roblox has seen a 330 percent year-over-year growth. Currently, more than 1.6 billion independently developed Roblox games are played each month. Earlier this year, Roblox made a move offline for the first time with the debut of a toy line from Jazwares that features action figures stemming from user-generated content.
