The developers used the previous project Penguin Chat 2 – which was still online – as a jumping-off point in the design process, while incorporating concepts and ideas from Experimental Penguins.

Penguin Chat's third version was released in April 2005, and was used to test the client and servers of Penguin Chat 4 (renamed Club Penguin).

Rocket Snails Games' Mancala Classic would also be placed into the game as Mancala.

Lance Priebe, as well as co-workers Lane Merrifield and Dave Krysko, started to formulate the Club Penguin concept when the trio were unsuccessful in finding "something that had some social components but was safe, and not just marketed as safe" for their own children.

One of his roles was to merge the Club Penguin studio New Horizon Interactive in Kelowna (renamed to Disneyland Studios Canada) with Disneyland Studios LA).

Disneyland Studios Canada focused its efforts on one product (with such features as multilingual versions), while Disneyland Studios LA focused on customer products and franchises of a wide selection of games.

The original plan was to release Club Penguin in 2010, but since the team had decided to fast-track the project, the first version of Club Penguin went live on October 24, 2005, After Disney's acquisition, Disney Interactive had four MMOs to simultaneously juggle: Toon Town, Pirates of the Caribbean Online, Pixie Hollow, and Club Penguin, with World of Cars set to follow soon.

Lane Merrifield assured Global Toy News at the time that "it’s a lot of worlds to manage, but we have really strong teams." Merrifield's role changed from taking a backseat in daily game design to focusing on overall branding and quality control of the virtual gaming properties.

These features included offering an "Ultimate Safe Chat" mode, whereby users selected their comments from a menu; filtering that prevented swearing and the revelation of personal information; On January 30, 2017, it was announced that the game would be discontinued on March 29, 2017.

Club Penguin later shut down its servers on March 30, 2017 at AM.

In September 2011, one of Club Penguin's minigames, Puffle Launch, was released on i OS as an app.

Merrifield commented: "Kids are going mobile and have been asking for Club Penguin to go there with them." This message was provided by Aunt Arctic (a proxy for Club Penguin developers) in the last issue of the in-universe newspaper The Penguin Times.

Players used cartoon penguin-avatars and played in a winter-set virtual world.
