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.

Evidently I have an internet connection or I wouldn't be able to post this.

People with internet connections CAN'T log into the game and it started during last nights BMW showdown. We deserve to know what going on? Can we get an explanation?

I would like to hear from administrators,( Ryyst you are one of those) as to what is going on with the game. We use to get updates as to what was going on but not lately. Team chat is still down, no word from ANYBODY as to when that will be fixed. (IF IT EVER WILL BE)

We were told months ago that GLU was trying to fix the problems with the forums page but the problems still exist (and it still SUCKS) and no word as to when or if they will be fixed either.

Can an administrator PLEASE address these issues? (Fingers are crossed)

    Racing Rivals is currently down, as most of you already know. We are aware of the issue and are working hard to get a hotfix out for the issue as soon as possible.

    Due to being left out of the last gem/crate showdown, I think i'll skip the cash one. I can get my money for less damage, using the game bots in the public lobby
