Roblox is experiencing major server issues, and some fans are blaming Chipotle for the outage.
A Roblox Status Twitter account said that as of last night, over 3 million players were impacted by the outage. The official Roblox account addressed the outage this morning, saying they are working hard to get things back to normal.
We know you’re having issues using Roblox right now.
We’re sorry and working hard to get things back to normal.

While fans are waiting to get back online, some are poking fun at a Chipotle promotion within Roblox, saying it’s to blame for the outage. The promotion, called the Chipotle Boorito Maze, is an official crossover with the fast-casual food chain where Roblox players can dress up in a Chipotle-inspired costume, and visit a cashier for a free burrito that can be redeemed at a Chipotle restaurant in real life.
The promotion kicked off on October 28 at 3:30 p.m., and just a few hours later, Roblox Status reported the outage impacting millions of players. We don’t know exactly why the Roblox servers are down, but the timing is causing some fans to connect the two events.
The power of Chipotle Burritos was too strong..
It crashed Roblox

The Chipotle Boorito event is only running until Sunday night, so hopefully, the servers get back up so people can grab their free burritos.
