    Attention Everyone!

    As of July 18th, 2019, Star Trek Online will no longer support any 32-Bit Microsoft Windows Operating System. This decision was made in order to improve game performance and to optimize the player experience. Please see this thread for more details.

    I hope not to many of us are still playing on 32bit.

    If someone is still playing on 32bit, oh well. Games, especially MMO(-RPG)s are dropping 32bit support. The last major support drop I know was World of Warcraft, but otherwise many new games only support 64bit by default.

    Eve online is leaving 32 bit behind as well very soon.

    Developers dropping 32 bit support is something we should be happy about. It removes a performance bottleneck and allows them to both save money by not having to maintain two code bases but also to expand on the game and start modernising the game engine. It indicates that Cryptic intends to keep investing in STO for quite some time.

    Or they're just shutting down the 32-bit servers to save money.

    Because STO is always on the verge of closing. Didn't you hear?

    They don't have 32-Bit servers, Players on both 32-Bit and 64-Bit versions of the game play on the same servers. As Paran said, this is a move to improve performance and to modernize the game engine.

    EDIT
    if you are still running 32-bit windows, here's a good reason to upgrade : https://www.zdnet.com/google-amp/art...leased-online/
