How much does Roblox cost? Roblox is completely free to join and free to download . If so inclined, users can choose to purchase Robux (our virtual currency) to buy in-game upgrades or accessories for their avatar.
Most Roblox games are free to play, and don't require any payment. If you want to make money, however, you can charge people a fee to play your game (between 25 and 1,000 Robux) . Note that people aren't buying your user-created game; they're paying for access to your user-created game.Oct 4, 2021
There's currently a 90% marketplace fee on Robux earned from selling game passes and developer products if you don't have Premium. If you do have Premium, that marketplace fee goes down to 30%.
Robux is a direct revenue stream for both the company and its game creators. When its in-game currency is spent in a game, Roblox then takes 47.5% of the money earned from that transaction. It splits that percentage three ways towards future development and research, platform hosting support, and operating costs.
Roblox's share price dropped after it announced its recent quarterly results , as the company's YoY bookings growth rates in Q4 2021 and January 2022 have slowed considerably.
The outage also caused Roblox to lose more than $1.5 billion in market cap on November 1, 2021, a period in which would take in at least $15 million in revenue. Refund sent to the creator for their advertisement after the initial outage.
For one thing, the main reason Roblox lost money in the quarter is that it spent heavily in paying its game developer partners well, in spending on research and development, and in improving "infrastructure and trust and safety" -- all items I view as crucial investments for a company that aspires to be a growth stock.Nov 14, 2021
