Original Club Penguin Game Being Replaced with New Platform

This morning, Club Penguin announced that they will be discontinuing the current Club Penguin game on desktop and mobile devices on March 29, 2017, and launching Club Penguin Island. Club Penguin Island will offer a unique penguin experience, with new features and gameplay, making it more fun than ever before.

They will be celebrating the first 11 years of the original game with a huge party beginning February 1, 2017.

Here is 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 January 31, 2017. From January 31 until March 29, 2017, current paid members can log in and continue to enjoy full-unlimited access until their original membership end date.
  • As of January 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 February 16, 2017, to pre-register here.
