On August 17, 2023, Roblox, the popular online platform that allows users to create and play games designed by other users, experienced an outage. The outage prevented players from accessing various experiences on the platform, and the cause is still unknown.
The error message “Unable to verify that you have access to this experience. Please try again later” appeared when users tried to load the Roblox website, rendering them unable to participate in their favorite games and interact with friends. This issue affected players across different devices, including PCs, consoles, and mobile devices.
Roblox has since acknowledged the outage and is working on a fix. In the meantime, players can check the Roblox Status page for updates.
