The Roblox Developer Conference 2021 (RDC 2021) is a special invite-only event that takes place every year. The conference usually includes game and platform update announcements, networking opportunities with major developers, as well as game-building events such as an overnight game jam for attendees.
Due to the pandemic, it was first announced in March 2020 that RDC 2021, initially scheduled to take place from July 16 – 18, 2021 would be a virtual-only event.
However, it was later postponed to October with an announcement in June 2021 stating that it would have both in-person and virtual attendance options.
