- The appointment signals Roblox’s interest in expanding beyond gaming to be more of a general entertainment platform, given Kilar’s prior experience as a chief executive at media and entertainment companies for over 15 years, most recently as CEO of WarnerMedia.
- The addition comes at a time when Roblox’s user base is aging up and the company is looking to cater to its slightly older demographic with new experiences.
- “Jason Kilar is a well-respected leader in the entertainment and media industry, and his experience in the space is of value to the Board as Roblox continues to scale globally,” said Roblox CEO David Baszucki, in a statement.
- “I am honored to join Roblox, a company I have long admired and cheered from afar as they leaned into the future,” noted Jason Kilar.
