On Saturday, February 17, 2018, we broadcast the 5th Annual Bloxy Awards—our annual celebration honoring the Roblox community. This year’s Bloxys was record-breaking! It’s already been viewed more than 1,000,000 times. Plus, more than 5,000 Robloxians bought virtual tickets for the event, which sold out in just over 24 hours. That’s not all—on Twitter, you voiced your passion for the Bloxy Awards and helped us reach over 23,000 mentions of the #BloxyAwards hashtag! A huge thanks goes out to all of you for your incredible support this past weekend!
The Bloxy Awards would not have been possible without you—the developers and creators on Roblox. Here’s just a few milestones you helped accomplish in 2017:
- This past year, the Roblox community published an astounding 11 million titles.
- More than 1,500 Roblox places achieved over 1 million visits in 2017 alone.
- MeepCity, first released by alexnewtron in February 2016, was the first Roblox game to pass 1 billion visits, reaching the milestone in late January 2018.
