• 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.”

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!

  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!?
