Roblox DOWN: Server status latest as gamers are hit with error

Roblox DOWN: Server status latest as gamers are hit with error

UPDATE: Outage Reports have dramatically dropped and the Roblox support say that most players can now access core services again without issues.

A message from the Roblox team adds: “Thanks for waiting. The site should now be back in working order for all players.”

ORIGINAL: Roblox is down tonight, according to users trying to connect with servers right now.

Even the Roblox site used to check server status is currently not working. It’s unclear what is causing tonight’s problems or how long it might last. But those affected are confirming problems with connecting with any servers tonight.

One user writes: “Don’t worry about it, it has been DDOSED attack which attacks an online provider shutting it down, but don’t worry give it some time and you should be able to log back in!”

Another adds: “Why is Roblox down? I had it open and then I closed it how darn stupid I am.”

It’s unclear how long it will take for normal Roblox services to be brought back online across all platforms.

Back in May Business Insider reported that the Roblox property is worth up to $2.5billion – a staggering number.

And, following on from these rumours, to make sure there was no room for doubt, the official Roblox Twitter account addressed the shutdown claims.

They said: “Let’s set things straight: Roblox isn’t “shutting down.” The same hoax (with a few details changed) goes around every year or two.

“Remember: don’t believe everything y’all read on the internet!”

The news comes as this weekend Roblox fans have been gearing up for the latest Bloxy Awards.

The 7th Annual Bloxyx Awards took place on Saturday, March 21 2020, and the Roblox team previously said what fans can expect from the Bloxyxs.
