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.

Mia's - Paul's - cars

I have seen only the first three ff movies so I'm not well conversant with content. That said why are Paul's cars labeled as Mia's ?

    Most likely because he passed away and they couldnt actually get permission to use his name. Thats what i always thought

    Si, something to do with the estate and higher powers. Brian's name won't be on anything

    Paraphrasing, but the agreement with Universal, and by extension, the Walker family, is that Brian's (Paul) name can not be used on anything. So, any car that comes to the game that was Brian's in any of the movies will have Mia's name on it.

    Should just spelled it Bryan Instead of Brian. Unless Pronunciation was part of the Agreement.

    Mia was his girlfriend / wife in the movies....makes sense to me to put his cars in her name.

    @greenstaged I'm a man and I'm not feminist, but why would you say that when it's pretty obvious as to why? Like not trying to diss but you must have used next to no logic

    At the end of the day if a dead man's family asked for his name not to be slapped all over some mobile phone game, or anything else for that matter, F*8K contracts and whatever, just respect their wishes - and it seems that is what actually happened so well done all. I think putting the cars in Mia's name is as true as you can get to the film as is possible in those circumstances.

    Let's face it, the film's are automotive porn for petrol heads and this game is mainly played by petrol heads and wannabe petrol heads, the kind of people who liked those films, but possibly Paul in real life was more than that to his family and they don't really see it as a fitting memorial.
