Roblox is an incredibly popular game with consistent growth, especially in recent months. The ongoing pandemic has no doubt played a hand in its increased popularity, thanks to its young average user base. Roblox is most popular with children under 14, who have been home from school with more free time on their hands to devote to entertainment products.

The accessibility of Roblox — a free-to-play game with basic visuals, which allow it to function on budget devices — has also played a part in its success. Users can enjoy the game on their existing mobile device or laptop, rather than, for example, needing to secure a rarified PS5 or Xbox Series X|S.
