It’s been around since 2006 but Roblox continues to be a favorite among gaming fans around the world because of its unique format that allows players and creators to come together in one platform.
In fact, its popularity already surpassed rival Minecraft when it reached over 100 million active users in 2019, making it the largest user-generated online gaming platform in the world.
But if you’re one of those biggest fans of Roblox, you’ll know that it’s only available in PC, mobile and Xbox One. And recently, there have been rumors that the popular game will soon be available on PS4. But will it really happen?
Roblox isn’t coming to PS4 anytime soon.
Unfortunately, the rumors about Roblox being introduced to PS4 is well, just a rumor. For one, Microsoft already signed an exclusive deal with Roblox in 2015 for the game to be released on its console, the Xbox one.
Although there were news that Sony was making a deal with Roblox to release the game on PS4, there have been no proof to justify the claim and Sony hasn’t released any statements on the matter until now. In fact, if you log on to Roblox using your PS4, you’ll instantly get the “your current platform isn’t supported” message.
Roblox isn’t coming to PS5 either.
Gaming enthusiasts are all waiting for the release of PS5 this year, which is why some fans are also looking forward to seeing Roblox as part of PS5’s repertoire once it’s launched.
But that may just be another wish for Roblox fans because no one really knows if there are plans to release the game on PS5 isntead of PS4.
Of course, PS5 is expected to be a lot better than its predecessor, which also makes it a better option for releasing games like Roblox. According to PlayStation CEO Jum Ryan, “with every console, the processor and graphics get better, which is, of course, compelling, but we need to have unique elements too.” But that’s just about all the information that the company has given about PS5 and its features.
Whether or not Roblox will be released on PS4 or PS5, only its developers will know. The PS5, however, is set to be launched in holiday 2020 and it will reportedly be sold for $499 in the United States. With bigger features and better capabilities, gamers wouldn’t mind paying the price for the new PS5, for sure.
