32-Bit Support Ending This Summer

32-Bit Support Ending This Summer - World of Warcraft - MMORPG.com

The World of Warcraft community site has been updated with a brief notice to let players know that 32-bit support for WoW will be ending this summer. "The vast majority of World of Warcraft players are already running the 64-bit version of the game, and this change will allow us to focus on making the 64-bit version as stable and efficient as possible". Players will need to upgrade their operating system to 64-bit, most often for free.

The memory limitations of 32-bit operating systems can impact the playability and stability of many modern games, and 64-bit operating systems have been industry standard for several years. As with past expansions, we’re making a great many technological updates to WoW with Battle for Azeroth to further enhance the game experience, and the time is right to make this change.

We recommend updating to the 64-bit version of the game before July 1, 2018, to ensure your World of Warcraft gaming experience is unaffected.
