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.

Who else was thrown off by the Nissan event?

    It's a very stupid thing they did, pretty much tricked us into putting money and then making it useless.

    They have had it this way since always it's only an exclusive event once and a while.

    Yeah, it did make it seem like it was that version of the GT-R only. But that's marketing for ya, sold some gems in sure.

    I havent been around as long as others here on the forums so I don't know how it used to be. Since I've been playing, the weekly "sale car" is not always an exclusive event. As a matter of fact, what happened this week happens more times than not, from my limited expirience. Not until 2-3 weeks ago did I notice people assuming the sale car was an event unto itself. My personal opinion is it would be rather silly for CIE to do what some are suggesting. I don't see any tricks or false advertising happening...maybe some false assumptions on our part.

    It's to keep you guessing. BMW M3 went for sale 2-3 weeks ago, and everyone thought it wasn't a BMW M3 exclusive event...and it was.
    Then the Nissan Skylien goes for sale and every thought it would be a Nissan Skyline exclusive event..and it wasn't lol. It IS eligible for this turf event as they promised.
