New updates are added at the bottom of this story…….
The original story (published 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 freedom to program their own games and play games created by other users.
The platform is complex and hence has had a bad reputation when it comes to its operations. The Roblox app and website crashes and stops working quite often.
There seems to be a similar outage as we speak where users are having trouble accessing the app.
And in case you’re trying to figure out why the Roblox app and website aren’t working for you, take comfort in the fact that you’re not the only one experiencing issues lately.
A quick look at the micro-blogging site Twitter indicates that there are many others affected by the same problem.
According to reports, while some say the service is not working or not working for them, others are not loading icons, images and thumbnails.
For a quick look, here’s how some of the complainants frame the issue:
#robloxdown Is it just me or things on the site (pictures, clothes) not loading
Roblox has these issues at 3am and it’s basically down -_-
is roblox down for anyone?
I can’t even continue because things are not loading. #RobloxDown
Crash Detector – a popular service that provides live crash information – also indicates that Roblox is indeed going through a problem and the sharp spike can be seen in the image below:
Any official word on the subject? Negative, so far. We have yet to locate a word of official service channels or their social media handles.
In fact, the official status says it’s still operational. This means that the company has yet to notice the reports.
Rest assured that we are keeping an eye on all related developments and will update this page with relevant information as we come across it.
So if you encounter the problem described here, stay tuned for updates.
