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.
I think it would be really cool if you could send gas to a friend to help them keep racing. An example: being someone on the last race of turf prep and ran out of gas, turf ends soon and you wont be able to get that free car to add to your collection of wicked rides 😂. Then 2 friends send 1 gas each, and you now have the 2 gas needed to do the race. Better hope you win 😄. Even if you could only get like 10 gas per day from friends, and only send like 5 gas a day to people it would be helpful. Would love to see what other players have to say about this
