Roblox Corp today acquired Guilded, an interactivity platform designed to connect gamers with various options like voice and video chatting. The company didn't disclose exact terms of the acquisition and Guilded will remain an independent company.

While it's not explicitly confirmed by executives, it's implied Guilded's solutions may show up in Roblox in some form. As per a press release, Guilded's tech goes beyond chatting and communication to also include in-game bots:

"Since launching in 2017, the Guilded team has built a powerful platform to connect gaming communities, including tools and features such as tiered voice chat, video chat, integrated calendars, scheduling tools and more. In March 2021, the company launched its bot API to simplify bot development allowing users with little or no programming experience to easily create bots."

Roblox already has dumb AI options with specific mini-games, and increased bot support could help create new innovative games. The games platform had over 43 million daily active users as of Q2 2021.
