On This Week: The End of Club Penguin?

BLIZZARD, Shamrock Bulletin Headquarters – In the next edition of our Saturday column: On This Week, we take a trip back to this time last year which saw the community become aware of something that may have symbolised the end of Club Penguin altogether. Join us to find out more…

Many in the Club Penguin community say the Club Penguin was finished when the original game closed in late March of 2017. Others say that it bid farewell in December 2018 when it’s successor, Club Penguin Island, shut down. For others in the community though, they still hold onto the hope that one day, Disney will dust off Club Penguin and bring it back for players who grew up with the game.

For many years, all websites owned by Disney for use with Club Penguin simply redirected to the Disney website – these included sites like clubherbert.com, used to tease upcoming plotlines, clubpenguin.com, used to host the original game, and the focus of today’s column: clubpenguinisland.com.

For this week’s Saturday Column, we’re taking a trip back to this time last year. To be precise, May 14th was the date of the event we’re focusing on. Unlike before, from May 2020, the website no longer redirects you to the Disney website.

The website “www.clubpenguinisland.com” no longer responds when loaded

Although seemingly unimportant, this development signalled a more certain discontinuation of Club Penguin as many had seem it.

Having said that, many players in the Club Penguin community still hope that the game will make an official return in the future – maybe it will!

And there you have it – a look back to a strange time in Club Penguin’s past! I’ll be back next week with another edition of “On This Week”, taking a look at the past history of Club Penguin or Club Penguin Armies!
