Roblox Has Been Offline For Days Now, Outage Not Related To Free Burritos Or A Hack

One of the most popular games on Earth, Roblox, has been offline for days, with the outage stretching past 60 hours and counting. The developer first reported the issue on October 29, and as of October 31, the game is still down due to an unknown reason. However, we do know it’s not related to free burritos (more on that later) or a hack.

A statement posted on October 30 says the studio has “identified the underlying internal cause of the outage” and teams are now doing engineering and maintenance work to bring the game back online. “Thanks for your patience,” the studio said.

A spokesperson told The Verge that Roblox’s downtime was not related to an “external intrusion.” However, the cause of the issue that brought the game down is unknown.

Some people believed the Roblox outage was related somehow to a the burrito chain Chipotle giving away $1 million worth of burritos through the game. However, Roblox Corp. confirmed that this was not the case.

To put the outage into perspective based on the number of people affected, Roblox Corp. reported that the game had 48 million players in August. Like other tech companies, Roblox Corp. is trying to create a metaverse of sorts with Roblox.
