A common question is one asking why Operation Swarm was cancelled rather than delayed until next year. The reasoning is because by January, Club Penguin Rewritten will be using different technology called HTML5, and Operation Swarm was developed with the current technology called Flash. These two aren’t compatible with each other, so even though all the party assets were completed, they’d have to be completely redone.
The team have now indicated an ambition to try and do that, which means that Operation Swarm could happen early next year.
I’ll be working with Gravix [developer] to convert everything for HTML5. I hope to actually change up a few things and try some new technology out. I’m planning on working with him to bring this to life in our HTML5 client. The aim is for January but ZERO PROMISES.-stu, Club Penguin Rewritten administrator
I must level with you: I would strongly advise not getting your hopes up; based on my judgement, which may be disputed, the chance of Operation Swarm still actually happening is probably extremely slim; the team have refused to guarantee that it’ll be released, stating they cannot make any promises, and understandably so given the challenging task to convert everything.
The information on this has been changing constantly, and my understanding is that the Club Penguin Rewritten team have wanted this post to be put out, but as a consequence of this changing information, I must provide a strong caveat by warning that I am heavily skeptical it will run: it is merely an ambition for now.
