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.
100 Million Dollar Call Out to C Y R U S
Next time you have a player coucil it may be wise to get actual racers on there. Not a youtuber, some ex racers, a guy who pretty much only races for wr's and a guy who doesn't even race, just exploits the game for his on personal gain. Any actual racer would have ripped this update apart at the coucil. They would have had nothing but negative things to say about this version versus the other version..
I see you constantly talking crap about the people who took part in the Players Council. One of the main things you always harp on is that we don't race according to you. I'd like to call you out to either CTR or the new HotRod that was just released in a best of 10 race off. I'll put 100 million on the line and I would like for you to do the same. I'll stream the races and then post the full video on my YouTube channel.
What do you say?
