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.

The Forum Migration

Hey Everybody

It's been awhile. I wanted to let you all know what occurred.

The fourms had issues with load times and what not, and we weren't able to remedy it on our end so we decided to migrate the forums to a new host. This was only supposed to take 24 hours. Due to some... miscommunications... it was taking longer than we hoped. As this is the holidays, this probably would not have been resolved until sometime next year. Instead of waiting that long we went ahead and re-opened the forums on our old system while we look for alternative plans.

So yes, we are back up. No, the sluggishness will probably continue. We will try again to find a better solution next year.

In the meantime, welcome back!
