  • Original Club Penguin game is shutting down and everyone is sad

Late previous year, Disney announced via a brief trailer that a Club Penguin-based game would be heading to mobile, though further information remains unknown. The tech news site believes the slump had to do with the fact that there are now so many apps and platforms available that capture the attention of Club Penguin's target market.

One of the first successful MMOs for children, Disney's Club Penguin, will be closing for good on March 29th.

According to the official Club Penguin website, they have made a decision to discontinue Club Penguin on the PC to transfer to another platform. At one point, Club Penguin had registered more than 200 million accounts on the freemium service aimed at young kids.

Come February paid member accounts will no longer be charged a recurring payment.

Meanwhile, those who have availed of the membership in advance prior to the announcement of the discontinuation of Club Penguin can continue playing the game until their membership expires.

Current paid members will be receiving emails with further information about membership including refund details.

Regarding memberships they will no longer be available for purchase as of January 31, 2017. If you now subscribe to the game, you should be getting an email with more information about the shutdown, including refund details.

The 11-year-old company, which has operated as a stand-alone division within Disney Interactive and Consumer Products, says members will have access to its existing game until March 29 but will not charge members for additional subscriptions. Players can transition to the new game when it launches just before the original game closes. Pre-registering their current Penguin names would give them exclusive in-game rewards once Club Penguin Island goes online.
