Roblox back online after 3-day outage
Roblox was back online Sunday night following an outage that stretched over three days.
Why it matters: By virtue of Roblox's success, an outage on its service not only affects the virtual world startup but all of the creators who have come to depend on the company, too.
Yes, but: Roblox has said it "will implement a policy to make our creator community economically whole as a result of this outage," with more details to come soon. Roblox also said it doesn't believe any user data was lost.
What they're saying: CEO David Baszucki apologized for the length of the outage on Sunday.
- "A core system in our infrastructure became overwhelmed, prompted by a subtle bug in our backend service communications while under heavy load," Baszucki said.
