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.

Racing Rivals 2.0 is coming

    Well there isn't a set date yet, I believe it's "atleast" 2 years.

  • RR FLAMERR FLAME Junior Member Users Awaiting Email Confirmation 113 Posts
    And it is also possible you could lose everything you have in transition. But don't worry, that's 2 years from now.
  • Old WomanOld Woman Player Moderator Registered Users 2,799 Posts

    If their stock keeps acting the way it has been, I can assure you they'll need to avoid you keeping your stuff.

    A Rivals 2 is planned for a future date. Whether it remains Racing Rivals 2 or evolves into something else entirely remains to be seen, a lot can happen between now and then.

    As for Rivals 1. Rest assured, we are not wiping accounts. We will most likely leave it running until the point where it makes less than it costs to leave up.

    As for what you spent on Racing Rivals and what will happen if we release a Rivals 2, I'll repost something I said on one of the Facebook pages:
    Like most all mobile games, RR will probably end... eventually. Its the way mobile games go. Most likely won't happen until it becomes more costly to run than it makes money. That could be awhile. We have no immediate plans to end Rivals 1. IF we release Rivals 2, understand it will most likely be a new game. This could mean different cars, different car parts, different looks whatever. So a 1 to 1 transfer of cars probably won't happen. We'll probably do some kind of credit transfer of some sort similar to Nitto, but RR2 is so far out, that we won't even know the details for quite some time.

    The thing you should all comprehend about mobile F2P games, is that they will eventually run it's course. You can't look at in-app purchases as investments in tangible goods. It's more akin to temporary entertainment, like buying tickets to a movie, or a concert. You pay for entertainment. Some pay more for those closer seats or whatever perk to get more enjoyment out of something, end of the day though, you don't get to keep that movie, or take the band home with you. Doesn't mean you didn't get your money's worth. That's how mobile gaming works.

    I hope RR stays under the same team/creators/management no matter the name of the new uodate. Racing Rivals is awesome and I literally spend the majority of my time playing the game and on here in the forums. It would suck hot sweaty swamp ass if Racing Rivals ended altogether.

    I think they should just sell the whole game when it gets to that point so we can have to different versions of the game because I with many others love it and for one wouldn't mind having to of the same game. If one is different then the other great different games same meaning just sell it to someone that has high hopes and then we will keep both games and keep happy players to on both!!!!!!!

    Thanks for the shout out for our website. We did a write up about the whole "OMFG 1.5" crap that had been spread on the Facebook groups.

    they should have a account transfer system as they rely on game centre and google play as a login that should be easy
    a bit like nitto legends
  • SZTUKASZTUKA Junior Member Registered Users 34 Posts
    So at this point should we still expect regular updates (cars, makers, events, ect) Or will time and resources be spent on The next Racing Rivals game?
  • dedicateddedicated Registered Users 2 Posts
    so what about all of the time and money people put into the current game.Will we be riendursed?
  • Gear Slammer 85Gear Slammer 85 Junior Member Registered Users 878 Posts
    I doubt we will be compensated in any way.

    I for one wouldn't exspect them to compensate us, I have a solid $700+ in the game.
    I know many many ppl have much more than that invested.
    But when Playstation moves from 3 to 4 do they pay you back for the games and time you've invested in 3,2, or 1?
    You can still play your old system but chances are you will get sick of it sooner than later.
    I think all we can ask is that they keep the current app up and running so we can hop on and continue playing it untill it gets to the point we're sick of it.

    It would however be cool if they kicked the veteran players a neat bonus for rolling over to the new version.
    Or if somhow you could roll over like 20 cars out of your old garage. It would probably be the hardest decisions most of us have every made!!

    But as stated above we have a long time before we need to worrie about it.

    Just an FYi mate,

    When CIE rolled the 1320 Challenge members into the newer Nitto Legends V2 they did have a brief transfer period to give their loyal racers a head start on the new game.

    It wasn't much but it was enough to give the loyal racers a huge advantage over everyone else on the new game.

    Those same CIE admins, are now GLU Long Beach employees.

    Good to know!
    Appreciate the positive advice!
    Like i said no matter to me. But a "jump start" on a fresh app would be awsome!
