In fact, scratch that, any game which can out muscle Fortnite for revenue (according to Rooster Money) must be pretty substantial.

That's before you factor in the recent news that the Roblox Corporation began trading on the New York Stock Exchange and was valued at an eye-watering $45 billion.

The question of the day is, can you play it on the most popular console in the world?

Can You Download Roblox On PS4?

At the time of writing PlayStation fans are likely going to be disappointed when we tell them that no, Roblox is unfortunately not available to download on PS4 or PS5.

Currently, the game is only available to download on PC, mobile devices (iOS and Android), as well as the Xbox family of consoles.

Why is Roblox not on PS4 or PS5?

Now first off, there is no definitive answer, so take this section with a pinch of salt. You're looking for answers, we're spitballing.

For starters, when the game did launch on Xbox, back in 2015, it was as part of an exclusivity deal. We doubt that this was a deal that kept the game locked in until the end of time, so why the game hasn't come to Xbox is still a mystery. 

It could be that Roblox simply doesn't want to bring it to more platforms. It's hardly as though they're not doing incredibly well from it's existing platforms as it is.

If this is the case it could mean we also don't see it arrive on Nintendo Switch anytime soon, too.

Roblox may come to PS4 or PS5 eventually

What makes the whole 'is Roblox coming to PS4' saga all the more interesting is that at one point, it seemed as though the game was in development for PlayStation's console.

Speaking during a Roblox stream back in 2016, Jack Hendrik, the games lead Communications Specialist told fans:

"Soon, but it’s in production. It’s been confirmed, we are working on it for the PS4, but I don’t have a release date for you guys."

Hendrik eventually left the company for pastures new and as far as we're aware, we don't recall seeing any official statements from the company on the prospect of a PlayStation port since 2016.

We would like to think that if Roblox on PS4 was a possibility at one stage in the past, it could yet be a possibility in the future.

For now, you'll have to stay tuned for future info as it becomes available.
