„Valve“ jau anksčiau buvo pranešusi, kad „Steam“ nebeveiks „Windows XP/Vista“ aplinkoje nuo 2019 metų sausio 1 dienos. Tad jei netyčia dar naudojate seną „Windows“ operacinę sistema „Steam“ naudotis nebegalėsite. Norint vėl pradėti naudotis „Steam“ teks atsinaujinti bent iki „Windows 7“ operacinės sistemos.

Pagal statistiką tik maždaug 1 % „Steam“ naudotojų dar turi „Windows XP/Vista“ operacines sistemas, bet tai ne vienintelė priežastis, dėl ko nutraukiamas palaikymas. „Steam“ naudoja „Google Chrome“ versiją, kuri yra nepalaikoma senesnių „Windows XP/Vista“ versijų.

Starting on January 1 2019, Steam will officially stop supporting the Windows XP and Windows Vista operating systems. This means that after that date the Steam Client will no longer run on those versions of Windows. In order to continue running Steam and any games or other products purchased through Steam, users will need to update to a more recent version of Windows.

The newest features in Steam rely on an embedded version of Google Chrome, which no longer functions on older versions of Windows. In addition, future versions of Steam will require Windows feature and security updates only present in Windows 7 and above.

For the remainder of 2018 Steam will continue to run and to launch games on Windows XP and Windows Vista, but other functionality in Steam will be somewhat limited. For example, new features such as the new Steam Chat will not be available. We encourage all users on these operating systems to upgrade to newer versions of Windows in order to have ongoing access to the latest features of Steam, and to ensure future access to all games and other Steam content.
