Why is there talk of Roblox shutting down?
There have been a lot of rumors talking about the potential of Roblox shutting down – from things like not having enough money to invest in servers to overpopulation to RIP Roblox comments appearing on threads all over the internet. Although individual games might stop getting new updates or get removed by developers, Roblox as a platform doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.
It all started with the website React 2424, a website that allows people to post fake news and pranks. Some users posted a news post that Roblox will be shutting down and a lot of Roblox enthusiasts believed it to be real instead of scrolling down to the bottom and noticing the disclaimer that “This is an Entertainment website and the users create the articles. These are jokes and fictional. It should not be taken seriously or as a source of information”.
