Over the course of the last five years, Racing Rivals has grown into one of the most hardcore racing games in the world. This loyal community has spent countless hours competing in millions of races in “winner take all” fashion – all in the name of Turf Wars and pink slips.

However, all good things must come to an end… After spending time evaluating Rivals and its future – we’ve decided that it’s time to move on. Simply put, the revenue generated from Racing Rivals unfortunately no longer covers the cost of operations. This was not an easy decision to make.

On March 31st, 2019 – Rivals will be racing off into the sunset, and will be permanently shut down. Current players have until this date to utilize any accumulated virtual currency. We’ll be offering some massive reductions in the cost of crates, installs and repairs in addition to a reduction on timers as you race your way into the history books. Effective immediately, no new in-app purchases will be permitted.

In closing, a resounding and sincere THANK YOU to our extremely driven fans for your loyalty and dedication over the years – we hope you’ve enjoyed playing Racing Rivals as much as we’ve enjoyed creating it.

Hey Racers!

3.0 will be live soon! In preparation for the update, we will need to take down the servers for a few hours while we upgrade and perform some maintenance. We expect the downtime to last around 4-5 hours.

Currently we plan to take the game down around 11am pacific time on Tuesday 11/18/2014. We will provide updates in this thread.

    We're going to need to extend the maintenance period by a couple more hours to make sure everything is working. Sorry for the wait, we'll have it up as soon as possible!
