Disney’s Closing Down Club Penguin And We Are All Devastated
The massively-multiplayer online game (MMO) is one of the biggest online games around, with over 200 million of us signed up to hang out with our perfect penguin pals.
“As you know, we’ve been hard at work developing an entirely new Club Penguin experience for mobile,” explains the Club Penguin team on a recent blog. “With this next chapter, we will be launching an amazing new product, Club Penguin Island, that offers a uniquely penguin experience, with new features and gameplay, making it more fun than ever.
“As part of the launch [...] we will be transitioning to an entirely new platform, and, we’ve made the decision to discontinue the current Club Penguin game on desktop and mobile devices on March 29, 2017.”
It’s okay - you don’t have grab your tissues just yet. Further to the closure, Disney has confirmed it’s bringing a new penguin-shaped experience - Club Penguin Island - to mobiles in March.
It’s super sad times, but if you’re up for a bittersweet celebration, Club Penguin will shortly be celebrating its 11th birthday, so waddle along and join in!
