Real Reason Behind This

According to the Tech Crunch, a Microsoft spokesperson said: “Because we want everyone to experience the best Skype has to offer, it’s sometimes necessary to retire older versions of Skype, and Skype-enabled devices. Unsupported Skype-enabled devices and platforms may experience problems with calls and chats, lost or dropped calls and instant messages, or could stop working completely.”

It is basically a part of the effort to get people to use new Skype more.
