Roblox (RBLX) – Get Roblox Report is investing $100 million in three videogames that it plans to bring to middle-school, high school and college classrooms, a media report says.
As reported by The Wall Street Journal, the San Mateo, Calif., videogame producer’s project is designed to expand beyond its users beyond teens and preteens and to join the internet effort called the metaverse.
Designed as a way for players to create their own games, Roblox now features millions of games from its users. But the three new ones will be among a handful tailored specifically for classrooms, the Journal reported.
