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.

A Gift For You All

Hey all!

It’s been a rough few weeks hasn’t it? We’ve put you all through the ringer and we’re sorry. It was never our intention. We felt we were going to bring Racing Rivals into the world of more modern devices by improving the look of the game using more powerful hardware. Unfortunately it didn’t quite work out the way we wanted so we’ve been working to restore the game to a smoothing working order by bringing the cars back to their pre 6.0 look while giving you the opportunity to still see their 6.0 versions. We still have some things to look into such as wheels and performance issues with some devices.

As a thank you to those that have stuck by as and to those coming back we are offering everyone who created their accounts prior to 11/14 23:59:59 UTC time a Honda Civic Type-R LE, 4 Honda boxes and a gold box. Simply log in to claim it.

Be sure to claim it soon as this gift will only be available until 11/22 at 23:59:59 UTC time.

In the meantime, we're looking into the wheel situation and also into performance issues on some devices.

Thank you all for your patience.
