Can You Play Roblox on PS4 and PS5? Answered

The answer to “can you play Roblox on PS4 and PS5″ is now yes! As of October 10, 2023 Roblox is officially available on PlayStation consoles. The app and storefront are available on multiple platforms as well, including PC, Mac, Xbox Series X|S, Android, iOS, and even Fire OS. However, it still isn’t available on Nintendo Switch.

Prior to the official release, it was possible to play Roblox on PS4 and PS5 web browsers, but that was an unofficial fix that doesn’t provide the best experience for the platform’s massive catalog of games. Luckily, you no longer need to use these workarounds. You instead want to play on the officially supported platforms to get the best Roblox experience.

Roblox Continues to Reach Wider Audiences

We can’t say with certainty that Roblox will ever be on Nintendo Switch in the future. But there are rumors and suggestions that a port is possible, similar to the official Playstation port. It’s understandable that Sony didn’t rush a port of Roblox since it’s difficult to curate all of the available content and ensure it’s safe for a younger playerbase. Part of the Microsoft vs. FTC trial revealed that Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO Jim Ryan previously said:

Historically, because of the large number of children that play on the PlayStation, we have been very careful with regards to opening them up to anything that could potentially exploit them. Over the last couple of years, however, we have reviewed those policies and relaxed a little on this. We have been conservative for too long, and now we are currently engaging with people at Roblox. We hope that the situation will change.

In the end, PlayStation released an official Roblox port. Nintendo remains unclear about the future of bringing Roblox to its systems. But like PlayStation, a larger number of younger players use Nintendo consoles, especially with the family-friendly titles the developers create, such as Mario and Pokemon. However, the possibility remains that Nintendo players will get to experience Roblox in the future as well.

And that answers the question of whether you can play Roblox on PS4 and PS5. For more topics or to check if there are updates regarding a release for the Nintendo Switch, visit our Roblox guides page.
