You heard the title. You heard the news. It is indeed sad to hear that the desktop version of Club Penguin will come to an end on March 2017.
It’s been 11 years Club Penguin existed in this world. Many people loved it since launch in 2005. People buys Club Penguin brand of toys and accessories. Old and new parties, takeovers, and events that occurred every year. Now, the end is near as the virtual online game will soon disappear from desktop.
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 enjoy full-unlimited access.
- 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.

According to the post, Club Penguin Island will have a ton of new features and gameplay experience that makes it more fun than ever. I am going be sure that players will like it when they test the game on March. With CPI on mobile, you can play it on the go. Anywhere you go.
Club Penguin has been a huge success towards all 11 years. With CPI coming, everything will go right as we move on to the future!
Thank you Club Penguin Team for my 7 years of experience on Club Penguin!
