Hey Millennials -- Don't look now, but you're getting old. Club Penguin, the online world / game you might've visited across many precious after-school hours, is shutting down at the end of March.
Disney made the announcement at the end of January on the official Club Penguin website. The current iteration of Club Penguin, which is available on the web and on mobile, locks its doors on March 29. Paid member accounts will no longer be charged a monthly fee, and you can no longer sign up for said memberships.
Club Penguin isn't dying, though: It's merely re-inventing itself for a hip new age. Club Penguin Island, a "uniquely penguin experience" according to Disney, is coming to mobile in March. You can pre-register for the app to earn exclusive rewards once the game goes live.
For now, Club Penguin is throwing a big going-away party. If you haven't signed in for a long (long) time, consider doing so long enough to say goodbye to your technicolor arctic avatar. Sure, doing so will make you feel kind of melancholy, but it won't be as depressing as inevitably signing into Neopets to say farewell to the Scorchio you haven't fed since 2002.
