Secrets and collectable exclusives have long been a part of video game culture as a gift to players who extend their love and support towards a game or platform, and Roblox is no different. With their initial version of the Egg Hunt, Roblox would scatter eggs across one or more games and it was up to players to figure out where they were and collect them all.
But, in recent years, the shifting of the trend toward a different ‘dev hunt’ experience alienated and frustrated players who had grown to know and love the original Egg Hunts. So, what is the current fate of the famed Egg Hunts? Let’s find out.
Will There Be a Roblox Egg Hunt in 2022?
After the 2020 Egg Hunt came crashing down and lost its appeal, in part due to the mobile experience, bugs, pay-to-win mechanics and more.
Roblox tried to make amends by announcing a Metaverse event for the 2021 version in December of 2020, putting up a post and inviting developers to take part.
But after that went completely under the radar and silent for a long while, the general opinion was that Roblox would discontinue the age-old event entirely.
Many content creators have expressed the fact that the decline started in 2019 when the shift towards Dev Hunts was made, with the Scrambled in Time event not being a huge hit with longtime players, or newer ones either, for that matter.
While this was disappointing to see, many still had hopes for the future, that Roblox would recognize and improve upon the forced tactics that had made the events post 2018 unbearable for some and technically unplayable in some cases as well.
What Happened to Roblox Eggs Hunts?
As it stands, the rumors were true and the event was indeed discontinued, so sadly there will officially be no Roblox Egg Hunt in 2022. The Egg Hunt was replaced entirely in place of the Metaverse Champions event.
The news was interestingly somewhat foreshadowed by the last egg that was ever collected in the new Metaverse Champions event, called the Tiny Egg of Nonexistence.
A game tester called Conor3D speculated on Twitter that since the Tiny Egg of Nonexistence was found in a room full of previously collected eggs over the years, this might have been a message for all players.
Nostalgic or not, this is heartbreaking for everyone involved and marks the end of one of the most special events in the history of video games.
So, this is the end of an era for many players who have been with the game for years. Have you ever participated in one of the Egg Hunts? What are your thoughts on not having one this year?
