Online game creation tool, Roblox, has now reached 90 million monthly active users.
According to developer and publisher, Roblox Corporation, players and creators also spend more than 1 billion hours a month creating and sharing their experiences.
The news comes as the platform adds support for French and German, and makes 150 of the most highly regarded Roblox experiences available in the two languages.
President of Roblox International, Chris Misner, says:
“Roblox is where anyone can unleash their creativity and have fun with their friends, no matter where they live. By bringing top games and resources to French and German audiences, we’re uniting the next generation through a truly global platform for play.”
Roblox creator, Ski Resort, who is based in Germany, adds:
“With the tools and resources Roblox provides, I’m able to reach more players across the world. I am especially happy to have Ski Resort available in my native German language and hope it inspires more developers and players in Germany to be a part of the Roblox community.”
An addition to French and German, Roblox is also available in English, Portuguese, Korean, Spanish, plus simplified and traditional Chinese. Support for more for languages will be added in the coming months.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
