Is Club Penguin back in 2020?
If you’ve been wanting to throw some snowballs at your mates or hang out in your igloo again, you’ll be glad to know that Club Penguin is back in 2020. Better yet, it never really left. Yes, Disney officially shut the servers and closed Club Penguin down back in 2017, following with the closure of Club Penguin Island in 2018. Dedicated fans of the original game, however, have brought it back online in private servers, using assets and SWF (Adobe Flash) game files. Is Club Penguin back in 2020? Yes, just how you remember it, but not through official channels.
There exists a couple of Club Penguin community and fan remakes. Club Penguin Online and Club Penguin Rewritten both offer up what is essentially the exact same experience as Disney’s original Club Penguin game. To play Club Penguin today in the year of our Lord, 2020, all you need to do is head to either website (both linked to above) and sign up to play.
You’ll find that both of these versions of Club Penguin feature in-game events, plenty of other players to play online with and communicate with, and the same strict moderators looking out for abuse of any kind and foul language. There’s still no swearing allowed in Club Penguin. It is designed for kids, after all.
Before you dive into the icy world of Club Penguin once more, however, heed this warning. As neither of these games are official, playing them does come with an increased risk of hacking and DDOS attacks. Club Penguin Rewritten, for example, suffered a bad DDOS attack, with millions of players having login details stolen (H/T: BleepingComputer). With the risk of a Disney shutdown order for both Club Penguin Online and Club Penguin Rewritten, too, you never know how long either game will remain online.
