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.
Is this a new hack/glitch? Or is my device about to take a dump?
I've been experiencing this for the last few months. I get ready to race, hit the launch button on my IPad screen, and NOTHING happens as I watch my opponent disappear in the distance. I'm finding at the most inopportune times the Launch button doesn't work until I hit it a second time. It seems to happen more during pinks races. So I've been wondering if there is a new hack/glitch or whatever that deactivates the Launch button until it is hit a second time? Is that possible? Has anyone else experienced this? I'm not a computer geek so I have no idea whether this is even possible? So is this a new hack/glitch/cheat or is my device simply on the verge of taking a dump?
