In a recent blog post, Meta Quest announced exciting news for all Meta Quest users – Roblox is coming to Meta Quest! The popular gaming platform will start with an open beta on App Lab in the upcoming weeks, offering an immersive VR experience. Meta stated that Roblox VR will be available on Quest 2, Quest Pro, and the upcoming Quest 3.

“Roblox is automatically publishing some experiences that use default player scripts to support VR devices,” Meta writes. “They’ve found that those experiences typically run well in VR without modifications, so they’re seeding the Roblox VR library with great content from day one.” There should be a lot of experiences to choose from; the platform has more than 15 million “active experiences” right now, Roblox says. And this Quest version of Roblox will support cross-platform play, so you’ll be able to jump into experiences with players on Xbox, mobile, and desktop.
