Club Penguin Shuts Down Again

Makayla Nason, Reporter

    Everyone was heartbroken when Disney’s Club Penguin game shut down on March 29th, 2017. Since then, numerous CPPS (Club Penguin Private Servers) have been made. Some including, Club Penguin Oasis, Club Penguin Paradise, and the two most popular, Club Penguin Online and Club Penguin Rewritten. People were thrilled to see that their childhood was back up and running and the fact that membership was free made it even better. 

    But, on May 15th 2020, Disney stated that all Club Penguin Clones must go offline after the BBC found that young children were being exposed to very inappropriate messages. Servers like Club Penguin Online had a specific mature server that gave a warning before you entered, for people to freely say bad messages and swear since others were complaining about not being able to.

    Screenshots of players saying things along the lines of inappropriate things, were leaked to the public, causing the mass hysteria. One owner of the CPPS is now facing arrest after suspicion of images of indent children on their computer.  Disney has since stated that they are copyrighting all Club Penguin servers, giving them a deadline to shut down or they would face serious legal charges. 

   All CPPS must be shut down in a matter of time, or Disney is going to make them face legal action. While our childhood game slips away from our fingers again, we still have the years of memories to hold on to.
