Currently, advertisers working with Anzu across Roblox can reach 110M+ monthly active users worldwide. Its turnkey solution allows advertisers to run display ads and gifs, at speed and scale across multiple Roblox games in minutes, many of which are exclusive to Anzu.
Anzu Co-Founder and CEO, Itamar Benedy said: “Some of the world’s biggest brands are using Roblox’s popularity and global reach to access previously hard-to-reach audiences, who are increasingly spending more time on the platform.
“Thanks to our exclusive partnership with Livewire, advertisers in APAC can now reach an engaged and diverse audience through our non-disruptive in-game ads that add to the gameplay, making experiences more realistic.”
