Roblox Developers Respond To Game Not Working

On May 4th, 2022 at approximately 2AM EST / 7AM BST, the developers took to their official Twitter account to issue a statement on the outage.

The team acknowledged the fact that Roblox was not working for many players around the world by saying they are “aware that some of you are having issues accessing Roblox. Our team is actively working on it. Thanks for your patience”.

Unfortunately, the Roblox developers didn’t give a timeframe on how long it would be before the game comes back online. But, as they are fully aware of the outage, it likely won’t be long until things are back up and running.
