Roblox video game platform down for Halloween

Roblox video game platform down for Halloween

(Washington) After the Halloween weekend ended two days after millions of players lost access to the online game creation platform, the popular video game site Roblox began to renew its service very gradually.


“We have identified the root cause and solution,” the California-based collaboration platform announced on Twitter on Sunday, “working to get things back online.”

On Sunday afternoon, Roblocks said it would “gradually bring areas back online”, but interruptions have continued since Friday.

On Roblox’s inactive site, it reads: “We are working to make things better. Back soon “.

Said in a statement to the press To the edge, Roblox confirmed that its platform could not be downgraded due to “external intrusion”.

“We believe we have identified the underlying internal cause for the failure, no sign of external intrusion,” a spokesman said.

The platform boasts frequent visitors of nearly 33 million users – half of whom are under the age of 16 – to play thousands of games, but to become creators of video games, and then share and sell on the service.

In the model of YouTube and its YouTubers, Roblox is a platform that, through microtransactions, pays its game creators to grow or become more sophisticated.

Listed at $ 70 a share on Wall Street in March, Roblox stock closed at $ 84 on Friday, indicating a $ 48 billion capitalization.
