If you play Minecraft on a PC with 32-bit Windows 10, then Mojang has bad news for you: the game will soon require a 64-bit operating system to run the latest version.

Mojang mentioned the upcoming end of 32-bit OS support in the release notes for the latest Minecraft 24w14a. This is a preview of the upcoming Minecraft 1.21 update. If the situation does not change by release, then those who play Minecraft on 32-bit Windows will be forced to update their systems to the 64-bit version of the OS. The change will not affect Windows 11 users, since the operating system is immediately offered only in a 64-bit version.

On the macOS side, Apple dropped support for 32-bit apps with the release of macOS Catalina in 2019. However, its predecessor, macOS Mojave, is still listed as supported on the Minecraft website. If you play Minecraft on 32-bit macOS Mojave, be prepared to update as well. There is no word yet on whether Mojang plans to stop supporting 32-bit systems on Android and iOS.
