Support for Windows 7 & 8 will end soon

2023-10-27 - By EVE Online Team

Security-conscious capsuleers,

EVE Online support for Windows 7 and 8 will end on December 7. After this date, you’ll need to have either Windows 10 or 11 installed in order to play EVE Online.

Being able to focus our support on Windows 10 and beyond allows us to increase development speed and ensure EVE remains a safe and secure experience for everyone. Working with the latest technology platforms also means more amazing features for EVE, as we head into the game’s third decade.

This change provides the opportunity to unlock further security features in the launcher, and gives more flexibility to choose external solutions as we develop EVE and its foundations further.

If you are affected by this change, you can find more details about how to upgrade your operating system on Microsoft’s support site.
