Club Penguin Announces Closure, Party Starts

Well, we all knew this day would be coming eventually. After years of waiting, Club Penguin will finally make the transition of an outdated flash online virtual world to a 3D mobile game called Club Penguin Island. This has been in the making since at least mid 2015. Megg announced Monday that the web version of Club Penguin will close on Wednesday, March 29th. Sometime around that time, Club Penguin Island will be released officially worldwide. Here is Megg’s post, which has gotten thousands of comments:

Hello penguins,

As you know, over the past few years, we’ve been hard at work developing an entirely new Club Penguin experience for mobile. 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 of Club Penguin Island in March, 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.

We’ll be celebrating the first 11 years with you with a huge party starting February 1, 2017. Here’s a little sneak peek of what you can expect at the party:

And here’s what you need to know about the closure:

  • Memberships for desktop Club Penguin and the Club Penguin app will no longer be available for purchase as of Jan. 31, 2017. From Jan. 31 until Mar. 29, 2017, current paid members can log in and continue to enjoy full-unlimited access until their original membership end date.
  • As of Jan. 31, 2017, paid member accounts will no longer be charged a recurring payment for desktop Club Penguin and the Club Penguin app.
  • Emails will be sent to current paid members with further information about membership including refund details.
  • If you do not currently have a Club Penguin membership, you can continue to log in and enjoy the game as you were previously, until March 29, 2017.

Players in select languages and territories are welcome to pre-register their new penguin name on Club Penguin Island to receive exclusive in-game rewards when they log in for the first time. You have until Feb. 16, 2017, to pre-register here.

We are deeply grateful for your time and enthusiasm since the beginning, and we’d like to thank each and every one of you in the Club Penguin community – we can’t wait for you to see what’s coming next.

If you have questions or would like additional information, please visit the FAQs page here.

And as always, waddle on,

-Club Penguin Team

So, just to recap – memberships are no longer available to purchase, however if players already had membership they can keep it. And it’s basically free, as you will no longer be paying per month as of January 31st.

This is surprising news. I knew Club Penguin was going to close, just not so soon. A party has been released called the “Waddle On Party” to celebrate the 11 years and four month history.
