• A one paragraph article from react2424 claims Roblox will be shutting down in 2020
  • The site is a prank site that allows users to create joke articles
  • People have still shared the article over 80,000 and even showed concern on Twitter

Roblox players started freaking out after a claim that the game is shutting down on March 22, 2020, went viral. Allegedly the guys behind Roblox can no longer afford to run their servers. A weird claim since Business Insider reported the property was worth $2.5 billion in May.

The claim started on the site react2424 with an article titled, “Roblox servers will shut sown 2020.” You would think people would notice the title misspelled the word “down.” If the title isn’t enough of a hint something is off, the “article” is made up of one short paragraph full of grammatical errors.

Because of the population,the roblox servers will shut down on march 22th,2020.”It was a fun time.” have the developers tweeted.”But we make less money now,and we can’t hold the servers.We dont have the money to keep them up.”

If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, the about section reads, “This website is an entertainment website, jokes are created by users. These are humourous jokes, fantasy, fictional, that should not be seriously taken or as a source of information.”

Roblox Servers Are Not Going To Shut Down In 2020 react2424

Despite everything pointing to the article being a prank, it has been shared over 80,000 times. Roblox players have also been panicking on the game’s Twitter account. So far Roblox has not responded to the prank article, but it is probably safe to say people do not need to worry about the game shutting down in 2020.

  1. Sometimes when I reset I turn into a noob, and also I joined somebodys group and they were gonna give me robux, so they did the transaction and I didn’t receive the robux yet. It’s been more than 10 hours. Roblox really is breaking, and if Roblox isn’t commenting themselves on how this is all just a joke, it’s because they don’t know if its rlly going to break or not.

  2. Guysssss! Roblox is not shutting down. In one article it said that the population was too much. Isn’t that better for them. The roblox creators earn more money when more people start playing. And even youtubers that play roblox have said that. Enjoy your time at roblox. Have a great day! Bye๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป๐ŸŽฎ

  4. shevadeva2 is my name on roblox. the thing has shut down and no access for my account. I know and i have proof that roblox is going to shut down in 2020. Sassyfemale11 has gave me some proof. He said he has contacted the roblox profile (the developer of roblox) and he has said that roblox may shut down earlier than 2020! In 2019 septermber 29th, problems may occur and shutdown the app and may never be secured again. the other response was that they have enough money and can go on without this game. making roblox updates are harder than it seems and looks. everyone whos a fan of roblox i am sorry, its going to shut down.. You may think this is a prank, no im a honest person. Have a nice day!

  5. WHAT! omg its going to shut down!? OMG i must spread the news! im so upset.. IN 2020!?!? Holy moly! i am going to cry my eyes out…

    • please stop believing this stuff its obviously never going to shut down because 1 its a prank website 2 they are making millions a day tops 3 whoever wrote it is illiterate and is a prankster

  7. Dunno who to believe… god or the developer of roblox.. -mumbles- or the comments and say wha!?!?!?!?! OK IM SCARED NONO NONONONONONON uh oh its gonna shut down ppl eeeek I JUST READ COMMENTS AND THATS WHATTT….

  9. quit roblox now! the hq is trying to hack people for no reason! a kidnapper has joined the hq and is looking for people.. read on yt, iunstagram, and facebook

  10. Please tell the truth I want to know if this is really going to happen I met people that now I’m really my friends in real life cause of this app it will be very sad if Roblox goes away very sad I met my best friend on this app its everything to me and if it means it’s going away tell me so I can get ready to say goodbye to my friends ๐Ÿ™ This is very sad to hear again so please tell us soon!

  11. Look at the way it was worded, it looks like a kindergarten child wrote it. There was no space after a comma, itโ€™s 22nd not 22th, and the wordplay is bad.

  12. Man if this is true then I dont want to play any other blocky games๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข

  13. I personally messaged roblox support and they told me that rumours are just rumours. I personally didnโ€™t think the โ€œprankโ€ was very funny but thatโ€™s my opinion. I didnโ€™t think it was funny because it caused me fear because like many people I have spent time and money on the game so it would be upsetting to just lose it ๐Ÿ˜•

  14. First, it’s obviously a prank, SECOND, if it did I’d be upset because, I wasted money, and, my favorite to watch videos are gone. THIRD, if it does. I WOULD BLAME IT ON THE PPLE WHO KEEP MAKING FAKE ACC’S ALL THE TIME AND OVERLOADING THE GAME!!!! ALSO MAKING 1 week LONG ACC’S! but luckily, it’s not going to ๐Ÿ™‚ IF NOT I’D TOTALY SUE AND GET ME MOOLA BOK! ty have a nice day Roblox and gamers who are worrying too much. PS- STOP BEING GULLIBLE AND STOP WITH THE DUMB PRANKS WHAT ARE YOU 8!?

  17. roblox is the legends in all games and no games have had multiple choices of games. well, speaking of roblox, it is actually a game platform. but if roblox shut down, then the players believed in roblox would feel like they are betrayed. but we can’y say that roblox gets 0 $. they get money players spend robux for buying stuff. well, if many rich kids are playing roblox, then there would be a lot of money for the roblox. but it’s sad that roblox does not have enough money to maintain their servers.

  18. Guys,ive been playing Roblox for years and I have experienced that it is a place for fun and kindness, not rudeness,I’ve seen these pranks something like “Roblox is shutting down September 2016” or “Roblox is taking away Robux and never coming back”, so all of u Roblox players stop freaking out this website is a scam I’ve read about it!!!!!! So everyone if it is true cheer on Roblox to not shut down and help them to help us get back on the fun servers!!

  19. guys, roblox isnt shutting down. i just emailed roblox, and thankfully, they said that roblox wont be shutting down in 2020. tho, it will be shutting down in july of 2025, because the money roblox is making is going down little by little each day. they said they cant support the app no more, thus reguarding that they will be shutting down in july of 2025. i am sorry to say that, but it needs to be said.

  20. The game has a report system that bans players daily, there would be a lot more people without it keep in mind that a lot of children play this game and think that being rude is cool!
    All players aren’t mean like that and Roblox would definitely spellcheck their articles there is no way the game is shutting down it could but I highly doubt it also people should not believe everything they see online!

    • the site is a prank site that allows users to create joke article not to create an war like diz and the more the people decides to share then share their comments the article looks to be serious in eyes of the fellow players

  21. guyz you know what?we/they have two options believe or not.for me i just have to play bois and girls cuz u know that if the roblox will shut down they have to annouce it for so the players will be warned then if it is only a prank by the roblox admin or idk it means that the roblox just want to be get discussed so the fake news will be true for others and not in scared people and you know what if in 1st they know that they will not get rich they dont made an gaming platform.

  22. if the roblox servers shuts down the other players will be get mad on roblox and others will be cry and so and so on
    and if the roblox dont shuts down the other people will really try the roblox so they will know why and whats happening
    and about the rude players imagine if the rude and hacker players dont go with roblox the roblox have no thrill exitement\

  23. Well if Roblox shuts down then people lose jobs money and a lot of YouTube, next Roblox would give us a notification of this and last there are star coded YouTubers who play Roblox a lot. They can email Roblox and find out things so by now they would have warned us about it. So Roblox can’t shut down in my opinion ( this sentence is not truth just my Opinion) because I spent a lot of money on Robux. They cant give it back (this sentence have facts) because its too hard to process all that info. What i’m saying is that If Roblox gave the money back then they would have to find the person who bought the Roblox card. Now he/she uses card fr catalog game-pass etc. The Robux goes to different places. So he/she who got the Robux from the player who bought their game-passes cloths etc. may buy something else then this process would keep going forever and Roblox would have to track Robux from all around the work strait from the start of the first Robux.

  29. Hey guys Roblox isn’t shutting down it was a troll from someone react2424 is a trolling website where you create websites or statements which are fake. It’s only suppose to prank friends don’t worry. point 1 : servers never get full because of overpopulation because if people love the game you make you earn money and use that to pay for more servers and earn money so they is cappin about being overpopulated. As they make money they use it on servers and make more money so they aren’t making less money because it doesn’t work like that. If you guys need proof or someone to help clear it watch this : youtube.com/watch?v=RCvjMKJDzQU

  31. My developer is trying to persuade me to move to
    .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of
    the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less.
    I’ve been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about
    a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
    I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I
    can import all my wordpress content into it? Any kind
    of help would be really appreciated!

  32. Right to you guys out there who says that Roblox will be shutting down, Its a lie because I’ve been playing Roblox since 2014 and it hasn’t ever shut down.
    So I’m pretty sure that Roblox isn’t going to shut down.
    GO ROBLOX YOU RULE!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  33. i dont think roblox would actully shut down i have heard alot of rumors than about roblox shutting down, sayin that a sever that became so popular is going to shut down when u just look at the website called ‘REACTED2424″.

  34. Why Roblox but it’s a cool game and ain’t not proof if that going to happen but to save Roblox by protest Roblox.
    But if you don’t then you call me to change it back (225)-361-5152

  35. powering imagination r.i.p roblox we have to save roblox if u want it to go away your crushing souls why dont u just kick games from roblox in stead of shuttiong down everyone do u want anybody to hate roblox some poeple cant play fortnite.because everybody does not no wat a email is on roblox u just make a acount and pass word. so tell me wats better for the word

  36. Ok first it’s not real it’s fake. If it was real they would spell down correctly instead of sown so either roblox isn’t gonna shut down or the person that typed it was just stoopid.

    Like seriously if you are making a point SPELL IT CORRECTLY!!!!!๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘

  37. ๐Ÿ˜‘ I’m literally speechless. This is stupid just stoopid!!
    Guys it’s not gonna shut down
    . First: they spelled sown instead of down
    . Second: why would it. It’s like a popular game!

  38. Roblox is not shutting down in 2020. Though it should shut down in March 2051 because I want Roblox to give us 31 more years.

    Roblox should shut down in 31 years, so you should be happy.
