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.

Hello RR community members!

    We need you boss. Without you us CIE boys are a dying bred. Your the only top dog left. Only one that's been here for us. We drug you through the dirt. Doged you, praised you , doged you again. Yet you've always stood up for us. Even if it was to be shut down and you had to tell us how it was going to be. You still fought for us. Ty for all the years, sorry for all the grief chief. Stand up guy you are.

    So I'm just going to throw this question out here and see what happens.

    Recently lost a tuned and customized civic si re during a game crash in a pinks race. Support was nice enough to shoot the car back to me, but it was minus the tune, Honda crate paint and 5-6 sets of crate wheels I had installed.
    The last car I had restored for. Similar reason was returned exactly as it was lost. Why was this one not?
    Support says they have never returned a car with all customization, but I know better. Where is my incentive to spend my money in this game on crates for inventory when I may lose a car in a game crash and then not get it back with all the stuff I paid for?

    Bottom line - don't risk it if you aren't willing to lose it. So many variables can happen during a pinks race....if you aren't ok with accepting a loss (even if the loss is due to circumstances beyond your control), don't risk it.

    Efglizzy I hear ya. It's going to be up the the makers of the game. They were, well..... in CHA-CHING! and a lot of it. I'm in business myself, and doing some simple (conservative) math, even after 7.0, the flow had to be quite healthy. They made a bad choice with 7.0. So then there was a dip in cash flow. business partnerships are tough especially if there is one exceeding greedy. personally from being shafted in partnerships before, I think the real troubles were internally. nothing to do with game popularity or cash flow. 7.0 would have happened a lot differently if they just polled what we wanted, or at least no one ever asked me and I was playing from the beginning. The problem I see is, they are in a standoff. No one has attempted to build off the RR platform, so I tend to think the rights are legally tied up. RR! Get over your selves.....
