Steam obustavlja podršku za starije verzije Windowsa

Steam, a well-known virtual gaming platform known for its vast game collection and frequent sales, will no longer be supporting older operating systems such as Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 starting from January 1, 2024. This decision by Valve, the company behind Steam, will directly impact users who still rely on these outdated versions of Windows.

With this change, the Steam client and all games on the platform will no longer receive updates, including security patches. Users on these versions will also lose access to technical support, and the stability and functionality of Steam on these machines will no longer be guaranteed.

The reason behind this decision lies in Steam’s need for certain functionalities that depend on a version of Google Chrome that is no longer compatible with older versions of Windows. This change comes after Microsoft’s decision to end support for Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 as of January 2023.

Valve urges gamers to upgrade to newer versions of the operating system, as it ensures better security. Additionally, there are plans for the release of a new Windows version, Windows 12, expected in mid-2024.
