In this post, we're taking a look at when Adopt Me updates will be coming to the game. While we won't always know the exact date, we're trying to compile a list of likely things that will be coming soon. So, if you're curious about what is on the horizon in the game, this is the page to learn about it!
While Adopt Me used to update every Friday, they have since decided to be a bit more flexible with their release schedule. That doesn't necessarily mean they've lowered the rate of content they are coming out with, it just means they are able to put more time into certain aspects of the game. This is overall a good thing for the game and the developers behind the game!
Adopt Me Updates
Here's a look at the upcoming updates, as well as some of the past updates that were added to the game.
This Week: World Oceans Day, Sky Castle Update
Thursday, June 10: Sky Castle Update
The Sky Castle is the next building on Adoption Island to get a full remodel. This Thursday, June 10, the Sky Castle update goes live with an updated building and a potions changeup. All potions will be moved to the Sky Castle and the Potions Shop will be removed from the game.
To celebrate Pride month, Uplift Games is also adding more Pride pins and decorative flags in this Thursday's Sky Castle Update.
Update June 9: Uplift Games has delayed the Premium Pet to a later update. A brief glimpse of the upcoming Cobra can be seen below.
Pals! We messed up! We need more time on the Cobra pet, so it won't be coming in the update tomorrow 😔— Adopt Me! (@PlayAdoptMe) June 9, 2021
BUT we don't want to delay the new Pride pins and decorative flags, so they are still coming tomorrow along with the new Sky Castle!! Update vid coming soon 🏳️🌈💕 pic.twitter.com/qbyXCNDnvN
Tuesday, June 8: World Oceans Day event
Uplift Games recently partnered with the Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC), a charity foundation that works worldwide to protect whales and dolphins. To celebrate World Oceans Day in Adopt Me , players can visit the Ocean Stand starting this Tuesday, June 8. New pin badges, a musical conch shell, a clam stroller, and more will be available at the stand.
Huge Spring Sale
A huge spring sale is coming to Adopt Me this week! Players can expect discounts on Bucks, Pets, Vehicle Gamepasses and more popular items. This upcoming weekend is also billed as a "huge Double-Bucks weekend" according to Jesse from Uplift Games, where players can earn up to 2x the amount of Bucks normally received in-game.
Many pets are 25% off during the Spring Sale. The pets displayed in the Adopt Me Spring Sale video are:
- Cerberus (375 Robux)
- Eagle (450 Robux)
- Horse (225 Robux)
- Kitsune (450 Robux)
- Lion (375 Robux)

Double Bucks Weekend lasts until May 31, and the Spring Sale ends on June 3. Both events go live on May 27 at 11am ET, 8am PT, and 4pm BST. Are you planning on picking up a new pet during this Roblox Adopt Me sale?
New Toy Shop and Red Squirrel Pet!
The Toy Shop was redesigned from the ground up in the New Toy Shop update. The new building's exterior is gift/present-themed and the interior is a wonderland of toys! Inside the Toy Shop appears to be a fun obby that is vertically designed where players can hop along clouds and shelves.
The Red Squirrel pet was showcased as a Premium Pet in this new update. We assume this means the Red Squirrel will cost Robux to purchase and will not be obtainable through in-game Bucks.
Additionally, the Toy Shop update promises improved standed toys Some items teased in the premiere video were Pogo Sticks, Umbrellas, and Unicycles.
The New Toy Shop update goes live Thursday, May 13 at 8am PT, 11am ET, 4pm BST. To find your local time, search "4pm BST local time" in Google.

New Lamb Pet and Egg Hunt in Easter Update!
Adopt Me players are treated to a late Easter update with a new pet, accessories, and furniture set. The Lamb is the new pet in this week's update. Additional accessories include Easter Egg glasses, bunny ears, and what looks to be a chick pet hat accessory!
There will also be an Easter Egg Hunt minigame where players collect eggs. These eggs can be used at the Easter Stand to purchase accessories.
The Easter Egg Update will go live April 29, at 8am PT / 11am ET / 4pm BST. The update will only be available for two weeks, so collect as much as you can while this event is available!
Better Backpack Update
Some quality-of-life features have come to the Backpack in this week's Adopt Me update. Item stacking and favorites are new Backpack additions to ensure better organization, less time scrolling, and more time playing.
Item Stacking: Duplicate items will no longer take up separate slots in the Backpack. Going forward, multiples of the same item will all stack in the same slot.
Favorites: Set up as a new category, you can add your favorite pets, items, food, and additional items to the Favorites section for even easier access in the backpack. Press the Star button on one of your pets or items to add to the Favorites section.

Gift Shop Update

- 9am PT
- 12pm ET
- 4pm GMT
Four new legendary vehicles (including the Hovercar, Boxcar) are planned to replace current items in the rotation. As teased in the Gift Refresh Update video premiere, the other two vehicles look like a menacing bone-crusher vehicle and a squirrel-themed vehicle. We'll have official names for all four vehicles once they release in the game.
The video also depicted some space-themed items. A ray gun and rocket ship-themed pogo stick were briefly shown. Could this mean a special space update planned for 2021? Whether or not these items are teasing something greater is unknown, so we'll just have to take that as speculation and rumor for now.
