Disney has already announced that they are already shutting down their browser-based game Club Penguin. As fans sadly wait for the time to come, there are a number of players who are taking it to social media to express how bummed they are after knowing the decision. There is even a Reddit forum solely dedicated to the game.
After 12 years of making kids and kids at heart smile, the game is officially closing now. It will take place at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time or 3:01 a.m. Eastern Time on March 30. On a good note, Kotaku reported that Disney is going to replace it soon with a new mobile game dubbed as Club Penguin Island.
