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.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but was it not said that all cars would have two cycles and the second cycle, the gems would be increased (doubled?). So where's the COPO this week? Will it be pushed back a week due to this clown car?

    Ya I'm curious about this as well, Don't get me wrong I love the idea about new cars, but, well, what LTOWN said...

    So being slightly shy of false advertisement, we are left wondering, what flavor of BS will be served next?

    The tl;dr version of Lutz post of "What are Seasons?" even said [Seasons are 12 weeks long One cycle through the six Turf War cities is six weeks, so there are two cycles Cycle 1- All new cars, new wraps Cycle 2- Same cars, new wraps, 2x Cash and Gems No break between Seasons]. The only thing that's true is after the 2nd Cycle, new cars will appear and no breaks in between seasons, the rest is false advertisement. I don't see 2x Cash and Gems happening and now we don't see a COPO as Rio's (2nd cycle) turf car. Overall, we got lied to.

    Simple thing to say .. Remember what happened before when the wrapped FRS-R comes twice .. I believe this is some king of strategy CIE using to place less desire car when they having issues with the TW .. Now for some players Scion TC is not important as the COPO Cam .. So having TW with all those issues and glitches for non desire car is sound logic .. Anyway the proper explanation should comes from CIE admins ..

    so the copo not being there is because of licensing, we are not allowed to release wrapped versions of that car. The fact that the first one got out was a accident =/. As for the doubling of rewards, we are discussing and messing around with it in the office currently. As for me not being around, I had a crazy week. But im back now so here we go again

    Damnit... Well that sucks. Can you release unwrapped versions? Haha id still like one and was really looking forward to it.

    Thx for the response Foxx. I'd like to have one as well. Being a ford man, I could go without, but I'd def work harder for it than a tc spec lol.
