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.
In Game Chat no longer working
I realized few days ago that racers on my list weren't actually ignoring me when I sent a message to someone but rather when they chat something to me nothing comes up on my end. I was made aware of this when in a race lobby where community chat there for me works fine. My buddy asked "hey cocoabiscuits are you getting my messages?" to my reply I obviously said no in the race lobby. So GLU I've heard of this happening to another one of my friends several months ago and the issue for him still isn't fixed and he's sent emails numerous times to you to no avail/no fix. Please make this high priority. I don't know if my team chat messaging is affected but as far as I know my private messaging is broke. I sent a complaint email. Just doubling up in case you guys miss that one.
