$RBLX Corporation Roblox
Roblox is a video game platform that allows young gamers to create, develop, and monetize games (or "experiences") for other players. The company effectively provides a hybrid of a game engine, publishing platform, online hosting and services, marketplace with payment processing, and social network to its developers. Roblox controls the platform, which generates revenue in multiple places while benefiting from outsourced game development. Unlike traditional video game publishers, Roblox is more concerned with developing new tools and monetization methods for its developers than with developing new games or franchises. Roblox is increasingly focused on developing a "metaverse" that extends beyond games to include experiences such as concerts, education, and even business management.
