Roblox recently announced its virtual worlds and games will be coming to the Meta Quest soon as an open beta.
Roblox VR is coming to the App Lab soon, potentially bringing millions of new games to Quest 2 and Quest Pro owners. It will also give its huge audience of 66 million another reason to check out the Meta Quest 2 and the upcoming Meta Quest 3.
Roblox on Meta Quest
Roblox said the Quest version will launch as an open beta on App Lab in the coming weeks and will be gathering feedback. Developers often use App Lab to beta test apps that are incomplete, or that might need further refinement.
Roblox wants to give its game creators a chance to experiment and develop VR-friendly experiences before launching in the Meta Quest app store.
We don’t know how polished the open beta will be, but Roblox already has experience with VR. You can run Roblox in virtual reality by connecting a VR headset to your Windows PC, but easing the requirement for a VR-ready PC could make a big difference.
Roblox Studio creators that want to be ready to support Quest 2 players need to select the new VR device type in the game settings panel. The option should become visible in the next few days.
Roblox is one of the largest multiplayer online game creation apps with millions of immersive 3D games available. We’ll keep you posted when we know a launch date.
