Following the intervention and statement from Disney and the confirmation by the Metropolitan Police of an arrest of a team member who had used Club Penguin Online for horrible things, the Club Penguin Rewritten team have released a long-awaited statement about their plans.
In it, they confirm that there are currently no plans to close.
We’re happy to hear Disney has stepped in to protect the safety of young and vulnerable people from being targeted by a criminal who was running a copy of their defunct game as another CPPS.

For context, the British national broadcaster are reporting that Disney has posed an ultimatum to servers to either close within a set deadline or face legal action. It’s welcomed news to hear that Club Penguin Rewritten isn’t closing, although it’s really a mystery what follows next.
Once again, I’ll be sure to keep you updated.
