The site is ranked #1 among kids and teen entertainment sites by comScore in the U.S. for daily visitors, total minutes, total page views, total visits, and average visits per visitor. ROBLOX generates over 3 billion page views, 60 million total engagement hours, and welcomes well over a million new users every month.

"5WPR is excited to highlight ROBLOX's unique platform which gives its young users the ability to begin their future careers at a very young age," says Ronn Torossian, CEO, 5W Public Relations. "We believe that we will help garner the recognition that this brand deserves and are confident that we can help it grow and reach its goal of becoming the global leader in user-generated gaming and creation for all ages."

5W Public Relations will execute the PR campaign focusing on ROBLOX's platform as the platform to use for early career development in the gaming industry by highlighting the games that have been created and the users that have created them, the weekly blog posts and their presence on Twitch TV which features a weekly live broadcast to over 11,000 followers. 

"We are proud of what ROBLOX has accomplished so far in empowering the next generation of game developers and players," said Brad Justus, Vice President of Marketing and Brand Experience. "We are looking forward to working with 5W to assist us in continuing to spread the word about our brand and its goal in providing tomorrow's builders the creative and coding capabilities which will help them propel their future careers."
