Roblox Back Online After Facing Outage Over Weekend Due to Bug in Backend

Roblocks, the popular gaming platform, has a long hiatus that starts on Friday and lasts through the weekend – millions of kids and parents trying to keep them busy and deal with their pain. On November 1, Roblox announced via Twitter that the service was back online.

In a statement on Saturday, Roblocks said, “We believe we have identified the root cause of the failure as there is no evidence of outside interference. We are in the process of carrying out the necessary engineering and maintenance to get Roblock back up and running as quickly as possible.”

Roblox said Friday that the pause was “not related to any experience or special partnerships on the platform.”

Chipottle, for his part, tweeted: “You missed Roblocks.”

On the Roblox platform, players can create their own games and play with other users. The coronavirus (epidemic) became hugely popular across the country (or continent) after the outbreak closed schools and left children looking for something at home.

According to data from social media consultancy Backlinko, Roblox has 43 million daily active users (compared to 14 million in 2016), 40 million games, and 9.5 million developers. According to Backlinko, the most popular Roblox game is “Accept Me!” – which allows users to raise digital pets.
