Disney's Club Penguin is closing down to make way for mobile-only Club Penguin Island

Disney's child-friendly social networking game Club Penguin will be shutting down on March 29th 2017 to be replaced by mobile-only title Club Penguin Island.

Paid memberships to Club Penguin are now unavailable. Members with paid memberships can still play the game until their subscription ends and will not be charged any additional fees.

Disney is also offering refunds to its paid members. Emails will be sent to members directly to provide more information on how they can claim a refund.

From small beginnings

Club Penguin started as a browser-based game back in 2005. It came to mobile in 2013 as the platform became more prevalent.

Its successor, Club Penguin Island, will be a mobile-only experience. It is currently in soft-launch in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand.

Pre-registration for the game is now available until February 16th to allow users to reserve their usernames ahead of the game's full launch. Those interested can head to the Club Penguin Island website to learn more.
