Top developers on Roblox in 2021
This article has been written by www.bloxbunny.com - a data platform about the Roblox platform who can provide: Roblox platform trends, usage on the platform and game revenue estimations.
We would like to recognize the top Roblox developers on Roblox by offering a complete overview of the most successful 5 Roblox developers of 2021.
By sharing its proceeds with its developers Roblox can grow its platform and move ahead on its big goals. David Baszucki wants the company and its users to collectively build the Metaverse, the universe of virtual worlds that are all interconnected. One of the requirements for that is to build a robust economy that benefits both developers and players alike, and Roblox believes user-generated content (UGC) is the answer.
Roblox expects to pay $250 million to its mostly young-adult developers this year. The company made the announcement at RDC, its sixth annual developer conference, which was a virtual event over the weekend.
Roblox is forecasting rapid growth in 2021, albeit at a much slower clip than last year. Revenue is expected to climb between 56% and 64% to between $1.44 billion and $1.52 billion, the company said last week. That suggests higher revenue per user, because the company sees the number of daily active users only increasing 6% to 12%, while total engagement hours are expected to be roughly flat.
Due to the higher revenue expected on the platform, developers will earn even more in 2021. Based on the 56% minimum forecasted increase, developer payouts are expected to reach 400m USD in 2021.
If you are looking at the data provided by the Roblox Data Platform www.bloxbunny.com, it is interesting to notice that the largest games out there are taking a very large portion of the total revenue.
Let’s see who are the top Roblox developers right now.
1. DreamCraft / Adopt me!
The creators of the most successful game of all time,DreamCraft,and its developers, NewFissy and Bethink are the first ones to present in this article. Their studio created the well-known game Adopt Me!, which is the first game to go over 20 billion visits on Roblox. They’ve done a great job, built a large team to allow for more content to be created (the team will soon reach 40+ people) and they have demonstrated that with a great vision miracles can happen.

Based on Bloxbunny’s estimations, the game is making steady revenue of up to 250k USD / day and it is expected to remain one of the top 3 games on Roblox.
2. Wolfpaq / Brookhaven RP
Brookhaven is a roleplay game created by Wolfpaq and Aidanleewolf in which players can roleplay in a large city, having the ability to purchase houses and cars, and other commodities with money.
The game has become a true challenger for Adopt me! In the last couple of months having weeks or days when it was the number 1 game on Roblox. It is interesting to see the progress of the game and the fact that kids are searching for a more relaxed social hangout than Adopt me!.

Even though the game is as played as Adopt me!, its monetization is not so strong. We expect that the game is generating up to 150k USD / day in revenue which is a very decent amount.
3. YXCeptional Studios/ Tower of Hell
Tower of Hell has been a surprise for a very long time. While the game is very simple and its monetization is not great, it involves a lot of skill. With its updates, it manages to keep users retained. Congratulations to the team for making it so good and so big.

According to Bloxbunny’s estimates, the game is generating up to 50k USD/ day due to the lack of monetization added to it.
4. Alexnewtron / MEEPCITY
Meepcity is already a old success that still remains strong in engaging kids of all ages. Alexnewtron and MeepCity were the first big hit on Roblox. The formula of the game has been improved by the Adopt me team but the game is still performing very well.
