You can fix this by performing a power cycle.  Press the Xbox button on the console for 10 seconds or until it turns off. Unplug the power cord then wait for a minute before plugging it back in. Turn on the Xbox after a few seconds then try running  Roblox again then check if it still crashes.

Another possible factor that can cause this problem is a corrupted Xbox user profile. You can check if this is the culprit by using a different profile.

  • Press the Xbox button on the controller.
  • Select Profile & System.
  • Select Add or switch.
  • Try using a different profile. If only one profile is available then select the Add new option to add another profile that you can use for checking.

If the problem does not occur when using this new profile then you will need to remove your original profile from the Xbox then add it again.

Solution 4: Delete the game save file

A corrupted game save file can cause the game to crash. In order to fix this you will need to delete this file then resync with the cloud.

  • Press the Xbox button on your controller.
  • At the Home tab open My games & apps.
  • Select See all.
  • Highlight Sea of Thieves then press the menu button on the controller.
  • Select Manage game and add-ons.
  • Select Saved data.
  • Select Delete all to remove the local save data.

After performing these steps try checking if the problem still occurs.
