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.

Fast & Furious Drivers coming soon!

Soon, driver’s from The Fate of the Furious film will be prowling the streets of Racing Rivals looking for a challenge… and some cars! While in a multiplayer lobby you may be challenged by them, either accept their pink slip challenge or chicken out. You may see them already in a lobby, but they won’t accept challenges, THEY decide who is worthy to take them on. Take note, they are out there to win, so don’t be surprised if they drive away with your car! They aren’t the type to give them back. However, if you are good enough, you may just drive away with their car, straight from The Fate of the Furious. 





Notes:

  • Once we update to 6.2.1, the drivers will start challenging you!
 (See Patch Notes - http://forums.racingrivals.com/rivals/discussion/5378788/patch-notes-6-2-1)
  • If you are are still on a 6.1.x build, you will not see these drivers.
  • 
If you are on 6.2.0, you will see the drivers, BUT you will experience issues with your car when racing them, safe bet is don’t accept their challenge until you update to 6.2.1
  • If you update to 6.2.1, you are good to go
If you accept a Fast & Furious pink slip challenge, you really are in a pink slip matchup. If you lose, you will lose your car and you will not have a chance to win it back. Additionally, our customer service policy on car restoration remains unchanged, they only restore cars due to an exception, it is not a guarantee. Accept their challenge at your car's risk.

    Yep. We locked them up in a dungeon chained to a wall. Only thing they own is an iPhone. Every now and then we toss them some bread and stale water.

    Yes, they are really AI racers.

    This idea sounds awesome but probably would have been a lot better if they used cars that weren't in the crates. With the cost of the crates it seems like this is a cheaper easier way to get around having to buy crates for the cars. This should be fun none the less.

    I can't help but ask how you came up with that? The Race The Devs event, and this current series of events.....have absolutely nothing in common.
  • CircusOfSinsCircusOfSins Junior Member Registered Users 11,304 Posts
    What event ? There is no event...yet anyways

    Why was the Day/time counter removed from the FF shipyard ?
