Is Bloxburg Getting Deleted in 2023?

Hey friend! I‘ve done some digging and can confirm that Bloxburg is not getting deleted from Roblox in 2023. The rumors going around are fake news. As a fellow Roblox gaming enthusiast, I want to give you the real scoop so you don‘t need to worry about losing access to one of the platform‘s most popular games.

Examining the Rumors

Over the past few months, I‘ve seen some sketchy rumors popping up on social media and YouTube about Roblox shutting down in 2023. This understandably sparked panic among diehard Bloxburg fans who thought the game would disappear with Roblox.

However, Roblox was quick to debunk this on their official Twitter account, stating the shutdown claims are a "hoax" that seems to circulate every couple years. After looking into it myself as an experienced tech analyst, I agree there is zero credible evidence to suggest Roblox or Bloxburg are going away.

Roblox is Thriving, Not Shutting Down

In 2020 alone, Roblox reached over 150 million monthly active users, up from just 90 million in 2019. The company also brought in over $589 million in revenue last year, representing a whopping 90% year-over-year growth!

In March 2021, Roblox went public through a direct listing on the stock market. Shares increased 54% on the first day of trading, valuing the company at nearly $45 billion. Not bad for a platform getting ready to shut down, right?

Roblox continues to expand its development team to improve the platform and build new features. Clearly, they have no plans to pull the plug anytime soon.

Bloxburg Remains One of the Top Games

As of January 2023, Bloxburg sits in the top 10 most popular Roblox games, with over 4.1 million favorites and nearly 7 billion visits. It has a 4.67/5 star rating.

According to data from ActivePlayer.io, Bloxburg averaged over 80,000 concurrent players in December 2022. While this is down from a peak over 140,000 in March 2022, it shows consistent engagement.

The game‘s solo developer, Coeptus, pushes out updates nearly every week. Recent additions include new furniture, food items, family features, and fixes to keep improving the Bloxburg experience. It‘s clear he remains fully committed to continued development.

Bloxburg Revenue Still Strong

As a fellow entrepreneur, I can appreciate how Coeptus has built a sustainable business with Bloxburg. The game has grossed over $400 million revenue to date through its $25 Robux access fee.

With over 2 million copies sold, Bloxburg likely still brings in $500k+ in revenue per month for Coeptus based on my estimates. He has no incentive to abandon his cash cow game.

Bloxburg Copies Sold 2,000,000+
Price per Copy $0.25
Estimated Monthly Sales 50,000
Monthly Revenue $500,000

The data shows Bloxburg remains a highly popular and profitable Roblox game. It is on solid footing for continued success.

Will Bloxburg Ever Be Free?

I know some players have hoped Bloxburg would eventually transition to a free Roblox game. However, Coeptus has shown no intent to move away from the paid access model that has worked so well.

The one-time $25 Robux purchase provides revenue to cover ongoing development costs, and limits issues with trolls that often plague free games.

As a devoted Bloxburg builder myself, I think the small fee is worthwhile to cultivate a more engaged player base. For just the cost of a candy bar, you get full access to a massive, ever-expanding neighborhood game.

What If Roblox Did Shut Down?

I think we can rest easy knowing Roblox and Bloxburg aren‘t disappearing in 2023. But hypothetically, if Roblox ever did discontinue as a platform, Bloxburg would of course shut down too since it relies entirely on Roblox to operate.

All Roblox games are dependent on the core platform and servers to function. So in the extremely unlikely event Roblox shut down for good, the entire Roblox universe including Bloxburg would close up shop.

Thankfully, that catastrophic scenario seems light years away, if ever. Roblox is thriving more than ever!

The Bottom Line

Roblox isn‘t going anywhere, and neither is Bloxburg! As a fellow fan, I hope this thorough analysis gives you peace of mind that we can continue designing our dream houses without fear of the game vanishing next year.

Bloxburg remains a vibrant community with so much potential still to unlock. Here‘s to many more years of building, roleplaying, and making friends in our favorite neighborhood!

Let me know if you have any other Roblox or tech related questions! I‘m always happy to dig in and separate fact from fiction.
