With over 202 million monthly users, Roblox is one of the most popular online gaming platforms.
But, how popular is it exactly? How many downloads does Roblox have, what is the Roblox age range, and what is Roblox MAU?
Let’s crunch numbers.

As of June 2020, Roblox has been downloaded around 383 million times across iOS and Google Play. The app is free to download and has more than 2,76 million reviews on Google Play and around 6.3 million reviews on the App Store. In fact, more than half of the gamers in the UK prefer downloading games.
According to the data from RTrack, as of April 2021, Roblox has over 202 million monthly active users. The data shows that the company has improved its numbers, especially among the younger population, and added a total of 80 million users in 2020 alone. Minecraft, on the other hand, has more than 3 million players daily.
Roblox has been steadily rising in popularity since 2016 and last year, the company reached a peak of 202 million users in April. For comparison, Roblox recorded 146 million in the same period of the previous year.
The gaming platform recorded nearly 50 million active users a day in the 4th quarter of last year and nearly 55 million in Q1 of 2022. The numbers show that Roblox has been continuously reporting more active users since Q1 of 2018 when it had 13.7 million daily active users.
Statistics show that at the beginning of 2020, around the time when COVID-19 was officially declared a pandemic, the number of daily active users surpassed 119 million. By the end of the year, that number rose to 199 million.
According to Roblox Corporation, as of September 2020, 79% of Roblox game users had accessed Roblox via a mobile device. 25% of the players used a desktop PC and only 3% of them used a console.
As of February 2022, the pet simulator Adopt Me! is the most popular game on the platform by the number of visits, followed by Tower of Hell with around 16.69 billion visits in February, and Brookhaven with 16 million visits.
Even though the PEGI rating of Roblox is lower, 29% of the Roblox population are aged 9-12. 25% are kids under the age of 9 and around 13% of the daily active users are between the ages of 13 and 16.
Only 14% of Roblox players and game creators are over the age of 25.
Roblox Corporation reported in 2020 that there is a very small gap between its male and female players– more than 44% of all Roblox users identified as female.
What makes this truly interesting is that the gap wasn’t always this small. Back in 2016, only 35% of all players were female.

In 2021, Roblox Corporation earned over $1.9 billion in revenue, a sizable bump from the previous year’s revenue of $924 million.

As someone who grew up gaming and always had a love for random facts, being able to write about gaming and technology for a living has been an absolute treat. Whenever I’m not researching my next topic for Don’t Disappoint Me, I am deflecting the attacks of Bosses in Sekiro, investigating a murder in Disco Elysium, helping Zagreus escape the underworld in Hades, or flanking enemies in Call of Duty with my squad. Having studied English language and literature has helped me merge these two worlds of random facts and gaming into a fulfilling career.
