Would be lovely if the powers that be would update the build in ArcaOS. It is so old it is about the level of where wine was able to load notepad, and not much else! Granted, it isn't like ArcaOS is a 'gaming' OS, but it would be awesome as one, if only to avoid Windows...

With so much still needing to be done, there's not much of an incentive to get Wine to work on some proprietary OS that barely has home users.

Yeah, the 'powers that be' is the ArcaOS / OS/2 Warp community. I don't expect the Wine project or Crossover to do it.
