An utterly colossal entity in the wider gaming space, Roblox finally arrived on PlayStation platforms roughly one week ago, and it's already proving to be an absolutely massive hit. The difficult-to-define title — which is essentially a vehicle for player-created games — is currently fighting it out with Call of Duty and Fortnite at the very top of the 'player engagement' tree on PS5 and PS4.
This impressive info comes from Circana (formerly NPD) analyst Mat Piscatella, who explains on Twitter: "According to Circana's Player Engagement Tracker, during its launch week Roblox ranked 3rd in percentage of PlayStation players that played the title at least once. Only Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II and Fortnite ranked higher."
Now, we're not going to sit here and pretend that we understand the full appeal of Roblox. but it's safe to say that there are very, very few games that could go toe-to-toe with juggernauts like Call of Duty and Fortnite in terms of popularity. Sony will no doubt be rubbing its hands together at the prospect of having yet another seemingly unstoppable title available on PlayStation.
