Roblox Down During the Weekend
Updated · Feb 21, 2022
After an outage that began on Thursday, the gaming platform was finally back on Sunday evening.
Roblox, a platform suitable for gaming, attending gigs, and even appearing at awards shows, was down for three days.
The issues first appeared at around 7 PM ET on October 28th. Users initially speculated that the reason was a Chipotle promotion - the company advertised a giveaway of $1 million worth of free burritos for Halloween.
This, however, turned out to be untrue.
A spokesperson explained: “We believe we have identified an underlying internal cause of the outage with no evidence of an external intrusion.”
In addition, the company tweeted that the outage had nothing to do with ongoing partnerships on the platform.
Still making progress on today’s outage. We’ll continue to keep you updated. Once again, we apologize for the delay.— Roblox (@Roblox) October 29, 2021
We know that this outage was not related to any specific experiences or partnerships on the platform.
As a result of the issues, players were unable to reach the platform for three days. It went back online during the evening on Sunday.
- 50% of the users on Roblox are under the age of 13.
- 40 million people play on the platform daily.
- There are currently more than 2.7 billion gamers globally.
- Experts predict that the global gaming market will hit $256.97 billion by 2025.
