The Truth Behind Club Penguin

I was doing a little research, and the purchase of Club Penguin from NHI didn't go like everyone thinks.

In 2005, Lane Merrifield, an employee for New Horizon Interactive thought a social network for kids was needed, so he created Club Penguin.

On August 1, 2007, Disney bought New Horizon Interactive (not Club Penguin) for 350 million as a subsidary of the Walt Disney Company.

Guys, New Horizon still holds a part in Club Penguin, just alongside Disney. New Horizon goes under a new name: Disney Online Studios Canada.

Eh? Never really cared about who made it, too much. But, good to know for a pop quiz. xD

Yep that is correct, and before Club Penguin was a kids game it went under the name "Penguin Chat" which was available to teens.
