Roblox appears to have started adding age ratings to the experiences in its catalog. Similar to the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) ratings on consumer video games in the United States and Canada, these ratings are a good way for users and parents to find out if a game is suitable for them.
While the Roblox platform itself holds an ESRB rating of “Teen” for Xbox and PC and “Everyone 10+” for PlayStation, the rating is not necessarily indicative of the individual user-generated experiences on the platform.
Roblox is a platform comprised of millions of user-generated experiences, so it makes sense that each experience differs in content and suitability.
So far, we’ve seen popular shooting games like Arsenal receive a rating of Ages 9+, and more family-friendly games like Pet Simulator X receive an “All Ages – Suitable for everyone” badge.
Other popular games like Adopt Me have yet to receive a rating, which may mean it’s either set by the game developer, or Roblox itself is in the process of reviewing the experiences.
So far, there has not been any announcement from Roblox regarding age ratings, but we’ll keep you posted when we learn more about it.
