Analyst notes

Niko Partners analyst Daniel Ahmad notes, “While the company has a roadmap it also acknowledges that its expenses are likely to increase and of course it needs to execute on its strategy to be successful, so there are also some risks. While it has mostly appealed to a younger audience in the past, the potential of expanding to an older audience, reaching players outside the US (Tencent has a license to launch the game in China) and additional content and monetization opportunities would allow the kids gaming platform to grow even further and reach profitability.”

Investors like Roblox

Roblox popularity among the investors is due to two prominent factors. First, it is specifically for kids and second, it’s creation tools are super easy and user friendly. Creators on the game platform are engaged in games creation, games stories, social spaces, role-playing spaces and more. Until last year, Roblox had a total of eight million developers and 20 million creations.
