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.

    @colin the game isn't fixed. How they gonna issues an apology without it being fixed? I've seen atleast 50 people post about hand outs. I know I give ryyst hell. But never have I asked for a hand out like all y'all. Pathetic

    Can you let me know the specific rims you're talking about please?

    Figured u might like a little positive feedback amongst all the negative. Me and my boyfriend are very happy with the update. There are still the few minor glitches like rims that you are aware of and working on but for the most part just wanted to say glu is doing a very good job and is just trying to make our gaming experience better and we thank you for that ☺

    Im using Samsung Galaxy tab A on lollipop. Enough ram, storage, same background processes running from before update, wifi connection fast enough to download assets quickly, still laggy. Gameplay and UI is pretty choppy, like the FPS is low. Racing is difficult cause of that. Mattes, flakes, and rims still off for the most part. Wraps and paint look good to me. Graphics are okay still rough around the edges. Hope atleast gameplay is smooth before turf starts.

    What is your racer name?

    Ign is Cinnamon Brianna

    I've added your device to our list of ones to reassess.

    Have you set your graphics options to "off"? You can find that option under Your Account info in game, just below volume I believe (The option may not be there if your device isn't able to handle the openGLES 3.0 shader set or special effects)


    Bossman gameplay is still semi choppy on my device even after you put it on the "list of devices to look at." Phone runs the game perfectly now, but I prefer and only play on my tablet. Maybe you put phone rather than my tablet ?

    @[RR] DownShift/@ [RR] Ryyst, I have the nexus 7, pixel lx and the note 7. This is horrible nothing but lag and now that I can actually get in to my garage it takes like 2 mins for me to get in the shipyard and when I try to get in a lobby it takes just as long. I don't care about the cheap as gift that everyone got...I just want no lag. Once again I will be missing turf cause the lag is bad. IGN: N A S T Y (2 spaces)

    We are aware of this and will fix this in a later update. Right now our priorities are for the performance and graphical issues.

    I'm not sure if anyone else is having this issue, but I can't be the only one. For those of use who drop launch, which is almost anyone I know who plays this game, there is a synchronization issue with cars that do not have nos installed. When I drop and try to hit launch on GO with a car that has nos my reaction time is usually 0.020 or better. I can consistently keep my rt under 0.055. However, with cas that do not have nos installed I can't keep my rt under 0.100 without trying to launch before GO. This happens with any no nos car. I thought it would be better with the update of 6.0.2 with experimental graphics turned off but it is not better at all. I am using iPhone 7+ with iOS 10.1.1

    great work on the non-experimental graphics couple wheels and things are a little off and the font is seems a little small still but for the most part everything else is just awesome guys
    alsoif I run it with download all it seems to run a little better had a bunch of glitches when I was running down load off

    Global Chat.

    Guys, it's a total failure. Why not take it completely out? It's got to be a strain on the server. We understand y'all worked hard on it. It's just not what this game needs. If you seriously take 20 minutes and just watch it.

    1. Scammers Paradise. We understand it's not supported but come on.they have unlimited reach now.

    2. 12 year olds talking about everyone mother while actually on their mothers phone playing rr. "I could choke the life out of them"

    3. Pedafiles. They are running wild. Free nudes here. Nudes for cars there. Those are grown asss men solicitating minors with pornographic material. That's illegal in all 50 states. Think of the fall out you guys at glu would have to deal with if the wrong mother sees some of that. I've seen soccer moms just plenty off larger companies down with weekend lawsuits. That in its self should be marit enough.

    4. Lobby rotation. Being server locked and racing same people over and over is really what stops alot of people. You can only race the same guys so many times. Can we please get some rotation ? Some sort of shuffle. Something. Please. Thanks.

    Idk just a thought.

    Any reason the frame rate is locked at 30 fps, and why we can't chat or join with a friend without loading the garage? Some large garages take a huge time to load, and 60fps or more would allow smoother gameplay, friend list scrolling, car movement in garage and showroom. Please consider these items. In version 5.x the frame rate wasn't locked to 30fps.

    I can list the rims but it's gonna be a long list. The game is a train wreck right now. I get that glu wants to take this in a new direction that they feel is better overall. The reality is that this direction isn't better at all. The game is a horrible mess right now and every band aid that's released just opens a whole new box of problems. At what point do you actually listen to the consumer and scrap this? At what point do you realize that "we" don't like or want this? Does it take your consumer base walking away to understand that this was the wrong direction? I just can't understand the mind set to keep pushing forward with something that the people clearly don't like. It's baffling how this is continuously falling on deaf ears. I work in a customer based industry. If we changed our direction as a company and our customers repeadily said they do not like, nor want this from us and yet we kept pushing it on them, our customers would go elsewhere. That's what glu is facing right now

    First time we have been on Rio. What's up with the tract extras? We can't even see our cars. I understand it's more of the jazz, but to the real racers that are addicted to the game it's very distracting trying to race walls and gates. Are all the tracts going to have visual blind spots while racing?

    Can we please get the launch , nos, shifters about three shades less transparent?

    Thanks fellas
