The Epic Games Store is one of the few apps still supporting old, pre-Windows 10 releases. However, its days are numbered. Epic Games recently published a notification, alerting users sticking to the now-unsupported Windows versions about the impending end of support. Interestingly, that will also affect Windows 10 users, namely those running 32-bit versions.

According to a message on the official website, Epic Games will pull the plug on Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and 32-bit Windows 10 in June 2024. The end of support means the affected platforms will no longer receive any updates, including security patches. However, customers who are unwilling or unable to update to a newer Windows version can continue using the Epic Games Store after the specified date. At some point, though, the app may stop working partially or altogether.

After June 2024, the Epic Games Store will be officially supported on 64-bit Windows 10 and Windows 11, which is 64-bit only. As for macOS, you need macOS 10.13 or higher to continue receiving updates and support.
