For every Roblox fan out there, we have some very exciting news to share, as it seems the option to change your Display Name is coming back! While this was something implemented a while ago in the game, it was a feature that was removed almost instantly, right after it went live due to misuse from certain individuals. The developers were quiet about it, but it is now officially announced that we will be able to change our Display Names once again. Read below to see more info about it.
How to change Display Name in Roblox
A long-sought feature finally became a reality back in February 2021, but as we mentioned, there were some players that treated the Display Name feature the wrong way. That said, for the past few days, there were claims from various players that they started seeing this option brought back into Roblox. While these were just that, random claims and rumors, the team went ahead and edited their original post from back in February, to confirm that this is indeed the case. Here is the new comment, officially written by the developers in the same article:
April 14 Update: We have begun another limited test rollout of the feature. As mentioned above, we will update this thread once the feature is ready to become available for everyone. Thank you!
