[Update: May 5] Roblox app & website down or not working? You're not alone
New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on June 4, 2021) follows:
Roblox is an online gaming platform as well as a game creation space developed by Roblox Corporation. It gives players the liberty to program their own games and play games created by other users.
The platform is complex and therefore, has had a terrible reputation when it comes to its operations. The Roblox app and website go down and stops working quite often.
There appears to be a similar outage as we speak where users are getting a hard time accessing the application.
And in case you’re trying to get your head around why the Roblox app and website aren’t working for you, find solace in the fact that you aren’t the only one facing issues lately.
A quick look at the micro-blogging site Twitter conveys there are many others affected by the same issue.
As per reports, while some say the service isn’t working or broken for them, others aren’t getting the icons, images, and thumbnails loaded.
For a quick glance, here’s how some of the complainants word the problem:
#robloxdown Is it just me or things on the site (images, clothing) aren’t loading
Roblox having those 3AM issues and it’s basically down -_-
is roblox down for anyone?
i can’t even get on because things aren’t loading. #RobloxDown
Down detector – a popular service that gives information about live outages – also conveys that Roblox is indeed going through a glitch and the sharp spike can be seen in the image below:
Any official word on the matter? Negative, as yet. We’re yet to locate a word from the official service channels or their social media handles.
In fact, the official status says it is still operational. This means that the company is yet to notice the reports.
Rest assured, we’re keeping tabs on all related developments, and will update this page with relevant info as and when we come across any.
So, in case you’re encountering the problem discussed here, stay hooked for updates.
