Roblox, a popular online game platform, has announced that it will be limiting its services in order to comply with new regulations in the European Union. The new regulations, which go into effect on May 25, 2018, require online game platforms to obtain parental consent before allowing children under the age of 16 to play games that involve personal data collection. In order to comply with the new regulations, Roblox will be introducing a new parental consent system for players in the European Union. Parents will be able to create a Roblox account for their child and then provide consent for their child to play games that involve personal data collection. The new parental consent system will not affect players in other regions. Roblox has also announced that it will be introducing a new age-appropriate content rating system for games on its platform. The new content rating system will give parents more information about the types of games their children are playing on Roblox. The introduction of these new measures comes as the European Union prepares to implement the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will strengthen and standardize data protection rules across the EU. The GDPR will come into effect on May 25, 2018.
There is currently a limited amount of Roblox Services that are available due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes the ability to create new games, upload game content, and access certain features on the Roblox website.
Roblox's limited services are a disappointment to many fans of the game. The company has not been able to keep up with the demand for new content and features, and has been forced to make do with what it has. This has led to a lot of frustration among players, and has even caused some to quit the game entirely.
