October 24, 2005: Beta testing ends and Club Penguin is launched
Club Penguin was originally to release in 2010, but thanks to beta testing it launched within 2 months.
According to rsnail, even after beta testing, Club Penguin was launched incomplete.
During beta testing, Club Penguin only had 11 (later 12) rooms, 5 games, and 10 employees.
Growth was the biggest problem for the team during Beta Testing. Club Penguin had way too many players for the servers they had.
