Roblox might join Meta Quest by the end of 2023

Roblox might join Meta Quest by the end of 2023

The popular gamified metaverse, Roblox, might join Meta to expand in VR. According to the Command Line newsletter by Verge, Roblox plans to arrive on Meta Quest in late 2023.

In 2021, Roblox CEO Dave Baszucki said that Meta (also Switch and PlayStation) makes “perfect sense for Roblox,” depicting the platform’s deep interest in virtual reality. 

In addition, both companies suffered financial losses last year: Roblox had a Q3 2022 loss of $297.8 million, and its shares fell by around 13%. Meanwhile, in the same quarter, Meta’s net income slumped by 50%, and its metaverse division, Reality Labs, reported a $3.67 billion loss. Roblox joining Meta Quest could help the companies recover, in a way, and attract more audiences.

Roblox already works with other VR headsets, including HTC Vive, Valve Index, and Oculus Rift. To play on the platform with VR, gamers have to connect their PC to a headset. Users can also access Roblox through Xbox Series and mobile devices.

Besides the new Meta Quest Pro headset that rolled out several months ago, Meta is planning to launch the follow-up consumer-grade headset for Quest 2 later this year. Roblox may choose to come to Meta Quest at a similar time.

Roblox is currently completing the Creator Hub, a new hub that provides developers with additional tools and centralizes the creator dashboard, documentation, forums, marketplace, and Talent Hub into one place. 

One of the latest partnerships for Roblox has been with the fast-fashion brand H&M. The 3D immersive “Loooptopia Experience” by H&M allows players to try on different clothing, create virtual wearables for their avatars, play games, explore locations, and more.
