Snapchat Egg Hunt 2021: Is Snapchat doing its Easter egg hunt game this year?

0


Snapchat users had been keeping their fingers firmly crossed about this year’s Easter Egg Hunt. For those who don’t know, this has become a tradition for Snapchat – sending users to search in real-life with their smartphones to ditch digital eggs hidden across the globe.

Last year, Snapchat ditched its usual affair. Due to social distancing measures, the 2020 Egg Hunt was rejigged so users could search for eggs on the Snap Map from all around the world without having to step out of their front door. This was to avoid encouraging users to make unnecessary journeys outside and mixing with others to travel the Snap Map and find the eggs.

So, with infections dropping in some countries and vaccinations slowly ramping up across the globe, fans were hopeful that 2021 would see a return of the traditional Snapchat Egg Hunt – complete with journeys outside. However, Snapchat has now confirmed that this year they’re taking “a break” from the Snapchat egg hunt.

Replying to one Snapchatter who asked whether there would be an Easter egg hunt this weekend, the @snapchatsupport customer care account on Twitter posted: “We are taking a break from Egg Hunt this year. Please check out this article, https://support.snapchat.com/a/games#GameDevelopers, to learn more about some other egg-cellent Games offered on Snapchat!”

As news spread that Snapchat’s 2021 Egg Hunt was being canned, frustrated Snapchatters have been taking to social media to express their disappointment. Replying to the Snapchat Support account, one tweeted: “Why are you taking a break? THERE IS NO GOOD REASON TO TAKE A BREAK THIS YEAR”.

While another posted: “SERIOUSLY WHY WHY WHY I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOWARD ALL WEEK!”

One Snapchatter wrote: “All I ask is a reason why you are doing this… everyone loved it”. And another added: “Please do the egg hunt”.

Disappointed Snapchatters have also launched a petition calling on the social media giant to make a u-turn and still hold an egg hunt this year.

Whether fans of the selfie app will be able to twist Snapchat’s arm and make them launch a 2021 egg hunt remains to be seen. However, in the meantime, you can check out this guide from Snapchat which suggests some of the other “egg-cellent” games Snapchatters can play this weekend.
