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.

Today's Hot Fix contained the following:
  • Ford GT RE - Racing with the Ford GT RE caused a restart error. This has now been fixed
  • Tournaments - Tournaments were not grouping players according to speed rating. This has now been fixed
  • Forced Update - Players who have not yet upgraded to 6.1 will now be forced to do so.
  • Anti-Cheat - We've added some ways to deter cheating (We will continue to work on eradicating cheating) We are unable to disclose exactly what these are as to not alert cheaters what to look for.

    To clarify the Tournament fix. Once the current set of tournaments are over, the new ones will properly group players together.
