While windows will support 32 bits like forever, ubuntu will drop i386 support for 19.10.

You can try to show cannonical your disagreement through http://chng.it/JnqDq5HHHZ, "who does not try..." ^^.

Does this mean that we even can't run 32 bit Windows games in a 64 bit Wine Prefix when Ubuntu drops 32 bit support?

 

But at  "Ubuntu NOT Dropping 32-bit App Support After All? (Updated)" and  "Ubuntu Changes Its Mind, Says it WILL Continue to Support 32-bit Apps".

It's because of the many protests.

As mentioned Canonical has backed up on their initial statement. But when Ubuntu 2004 has the end of life cycle come up, who knows what will happen. I have a ton of 32 bit games that I run on Wine\Playonlinux that I would hate to lose.
