Those who make the most popular Roblox games can earn a six-figure salary. One developer, 21-year-old Annie Shoemaker, said she had raised more than $ 500,000 from the platform, mostly since the epidemic began. She said she used some of the money to hire two employees and a dozen contractors.
Epidemic-fueled success, she said, “is the push I needed for my full-time job for Robox.”
After delaying his December listing, Roblox should have gone public in January. But it pushed back the date when the Securities and Exchange Commission asked the company to change the way it calculated its revenue. Roblox has since followed.
At an investor event last month, the company’s chief business officer Craig Donato said Robel was trying to add more users, largely by appealing to international audiences and older gamers. He said that the company is working towards more polished graphics, more complex games and a faster-than-life avatar.
The ultimate goal, the company said, is to create a “metaverse”, a concept mostly reserved for science fiction that describes a shared online universe where people can live and interact as if they were in person. . Roblox held commercial meetings on stage and promoted virtual concerts within his universe.
“Just as mail, telegraph, telephone, text and video are utilities for collaborative work, we are confident that Roblox and metaverse will join these days as essential tools for business communication,” Mr. Buszuki said during Investor Day said. “Eventually, someday we can shop within Roblox.”
