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.

Proper sequence to reinstall game?

So my buddy was having issues today with the game. He could start it up, do mods but when it came time to race, nothing. Wouldn't even show his car available for the event. After trying to reboot his phone to no avail, I suggested a reinstall of the game. Which got us both to wondering. Can you delete the app and reinstall without loosing your progress? He does have it linked to Game Center so I'm guessing all the data is stored there but want to be sure for future reference. Thanks.

    Yeah, if you've linked it Gamecentre then it will come up with 'do you want to keep Gamecentre records' you press keep.
    Redownload the game
    The game should start at tutorial but will quickly say 'game save detected' or something similar
    Press reload NOT carry on
    Your save will be back to normal when the game restarts, hope I helped

    Yup just delete game it will ask keep listed with game centre or don't keep you hit keep, then reinstall app and if you are logged into the same game centre it will ask load user or keep playing here you wanna hit load user

    Okay, so the first message said "do you want to delete game data" and had option for okay or cancel. So I guess you go ahead and select ok on that one and then a second message will appear for the Game Center info? I know this is how it works on their sister game Car Town Streets. So that would make sense.

    Yep, should say 'keep' OR 'remove' choose the obvious choice (keep, duh lol) and just do all the steps that old woman and I said

    Awesome. Thanks. Since he just started he doesn't have much anyway but if he lost it all he'd probably quit. So appreciate the confirmation.

    just so you all know, if your game is linked to game centre you do NOT need to click keep, the files will automatically redownload after you log in anyhow.
