Roblox Hits Record Players Before Experiencing Server Outage

Roblox servers are down, but the engineers are working on it.

Roblox, the popular game platform, is experiencing a server outage and degraded performance today. The platform is loading slower for many users, and for some, not loading at all. This means that many players are unable to join games and use many features of the platform, such as the website, mobile app, Xbox app, and Avatar options.

Before the servers went down, Roblox saw a record number of concurrent players of over 8,650,000. This marks the second week in a row that the platform has smashed its all-time high user count. It is likely that the increase in traffic caused some server stability problems, leading to the overall service disruption.
