Is Roblox shutting down in 2021? That is most definitely the question on some players minds.
It might sound ridiculous to some readers, but people do genuinely want to know the answer because there are always seemingly been rumours swirling around that the game is on the way out.

However, the TLDR is that no, Roblox is not shutting down anytime soon. It's merely a strange hoax that regularly does the rounds on the internet. The very fact that the Roblox Corporation had to make an official statement on the matter shows you just how far and wide this rumour spread.

Is Roblox Shutting Down? Answer: No.
Don't you fret, Roblox is not shutting down in 2021, or any year for that matter (at least at the time of writing).
The game is currently thriving and if anything the publisher is ploughing more resources into the game than ever.
Updates continue to arrive and if you head over to the official website you'll see regular blog posts detailing upcoming content and promotions tying into films, books and more.
Though it was a few months ago, the speculation clearly became too much for the studio who decided to respond to the rumours about the game's demise.
Writing on Twitter, the official Roblox account told fans:
"Let’s set things straight: Roblox isn’t ‘shutting down’. The same hoax (with a few details changed) goes around every year or two. Remember: don’t believe everything y’all read on the internet!”.
There you go, straight from the horse's mouth.
