Roblox Coming to PS5 and PS4; Release Date Revealed
October 2023 marks the arrival of Roblox on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, ending the game’s exclusivity on Xbox consoles. However, the release for Nintendo Switch remains uncertain.
When is the Roblox PS5 and PS4 Release Date?
During the ninth annual Roblox Developers Conference (RDC), the company confirmed that Roblox will be released on PS5 and PS4 in October 2023. While an exact date wasn’t provided, fans can anticipate the game’s arrival on PlayStation platforms next month.
Expanding to PlayStation Platforms
PlayStation users will finally have access to Roblox, as the company reassessed its policies to address concerns regarding child exploitation content. Jim Ryan, head of PlayStation, stated during the Microsoft and Activision vs. FTC court battle that Sony had “reviewed and relaxed” some of their policies to allow Roblox onto their console ecosystem.
This move means that all of the experiences currently available on mobile, PC, and Xbox will also be accessible on PlayStation consoles upon the app’s release. Through this expansion, Roblox aims to reach a wider audience and offer its popular games and creative platform to a new set of gamers.
Meta Quest Release and Xbox Update
Roblox enthusiasts can also look forward to the game’s release on Meta Quest later this month. The developers’ open beta has seen enormous success within its first five days of release. Additionally, the Xbox version will receive an update, promising a new appearance for improved user experience, better content recommendations, and more frequent updates.
Will Roblox Come to Nintendo Switch?
While the news about Roblox’s expansion to PlayStation consoles brought excitement, the future of the game on Nintendo Switch remains uncertain. During the RDC, there was no mention of a release on the popular portable console. However, Roblox CTO Dan Sturman mentioned that the game would be capable of running on the Nintendo Switch in its current form but withheld any official announcements.
With the upcoming arrival of Roblox on PS5 and PS4 in October 2023, players on PlayStation platforms can finally experience the game’s wide array of user-generated content. While the release date for Nintendo Switch is uncertain, fans can remain hopeful for Roblox’s expansion to continue and bring its immersive world to even more gaming enthusiasts.
