On August 28, 2019, we will be ending support for Roblox on Windows XP and Vista. This means that anyone running these operating systems will need to upgrade to Windows 7 or above to continue playing.
Why is this happening?
These operating systems are outdated and unsupported by Microsoft, which means they no longer receive security patches. Furthermore, it’s becoming more and more difficult to support these operating systems ourselves, and by ending compatibility for XP and Vista we can devote more resources to improving the platform for the rest of our players and developers.
Who will be affected?
The vast majority of our Windows players are on Windows 7 or above and will be unaffected by this change. Windows XP and Vista computers make up only a very small percentage of users worldwide. Still, we hope that the users that we do have using these operating systems will consider upgrading to a later version.
When will this happen?
Windows XP and Vista users will begin receiving daily warnings on August 14. Starting August 28, they will no longer be able to launch Roblox.
What about Roblox Studio?
Roblox Studio already requires Windows 7 or above, so there will be no change for Studio users.
