Roblox comes back online after three-day outage

Roblox is finally returning to normal after a nearly three-day outage. The gaming platform’s developer said it was “incrementally” bringing regions back to service after having pinpointed the cause roughly three hours earlier. The company had a possible candidate on October 30th, but didn’t narrow it down until a day later.

The company didn’t detail the cause, but had previously ruled out particular “experiences or partnerships.” Some had blame the outage on a Chipotle promo that launched half an hour before the failure took place on the evening of October 28th.

Whatever the reason for the outage, it may have had a lasting effect. Roblox has over 40 million daily users, and has been home to major concerts in recent months. That could leave more than a few frustrated kids, not to mention parents and creators wondering about the long-term reliability of the platform.
