The popular torrent site RARBG has officially been shut down.
RARBG one of the most popular torrent websites in the world, has officially shut down after 15 years of service.
The site had millions of monthly visitors from across the world who used it to access various torrents including films, shows, games, and more.
In a statement posted on the RARBG official website (rarbg.to) the operators indicated several reasons for the closure.
“Hello guys, We would like to inform you that we have decided to shut down our site. The past 2 years have been very difficult for us – some of the people on our team died due to covid complications, and others still suffer the side effects of it – not being able to work at all. Some are also fighting the war in Europe – ON BOTH SIDES.”
You can read the full statement from the operators on their website.
Therefore, numerous circumstances ultimately led to the shut down including inflation, Covid complications, the war in Europe, and other rising expenses of operating a massive website.
