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.

Retired

The time has come to say goodbye to the game. I have removed the app from all of my devices and will no longer be playing. To everyone who has sent and continues to send messages for set ups, I apologize but I will not be checking messages anymore. The set ups changed along with the way the cars launch and I don't have the time, patience or money to go through and re learn how to set up the cars and launch them again. I thank everyone I have talked to and hope that i have helped in some small way. The game is no longer fun and I will be moving on. Good luck to you all in the future. Zondaman signing off.

    Now this is sad to see, you really seemed like someone who really knew their way around the game and didn't mind helping people out when you could. That's the right kind of person every gaming community needs. It's too bad that you're called it quits but with this update it seems like many people are doing so. Once or if they fix this maybe you'll return, who knows. Till that time comes if it ever does, best of luck where you go from here.

    Thanks. I tried to help out any way I could. Several long time players are leaving. All of the face book groups I'm in are filled with posts of players who are very unhappy and leaving. Like rats jumping off of a sinking ship. Sad really, this game used to be fun. I had no problem with the new garage, new look and new content. But changing the set ups on the cars, the lag, first gear jamming every single race, launching being changed...it was a poorly executed update. It is what it is I guess.

    That really sucks zondaman. Not only are you one of the best tuners and racers in the game, you are a good guy too. I hope you will reconsider but I don't blame you either. The update totally screwed up what many of us spent hours practicing/perfecting. If you don't come back, good luck to you.
