I've regularly seen temperatures at that level and even much colder and I have never seen that message. Eyesight has worked for me even down at -35F. And I rarely warm my car up much before I take off.

EyeSight does indeed have low and high temperature limits programmed into it. It's even noted, more than once, in the EyeSight manual. The Factory Service Manual further states that EyeSight may enter Temporary Stop mode at temperatures above 70°C (158°F) or below -10°C (14°F).
Although it says "may enter" I'm surprised I haven't seen the low temperature warning. We often go weeks at a time where the high temperature is well below 14F. The only message I have seen for Eyesight disabling is "No camera view"

Of course the key to that is the part about the only message I have seen being "No camera view" It is quite likely that the one for temperature range had appeared and I just never noticed it.
This morning presented the perfect opportunity to put it to the test. When I got home from work this morning after night shift the temperature was -27F. I had driven my truck to work so my Outback was completely at the mercy of the cold without even having the block heater plugged in. I figured it would be a good time to test my now 4+ year old Everstart Group 24 battery. The Outback started right up though it did seem to crank a little longer before it fired.

When it started this was what I saw:

Had another first this morning. Once again it was -27F. Same as the other day the Eyesight was disabled with the temperature range alert on the dash. I took off for work and shortly after I pulled out I hit the high beam lever and nothing happened. I didn't think much about it because sometimes the street signs reflect enough to keep the high beams from turning on when the High Beam Assist is on. This time though they never came on. I hit the lever back to low beam and then back to high beam and again nothing, but this time I noticed the message "High Beam Assist Disabled".

It turned out that the this was disabled separately from Eyesight, and the High Beam Assist came on after about two minutes of driving, and the Eyesight took a little longer; about 8 minutes I believe. That might just be the case for the 2017s though because I think in 2018 the third camera isn't used and the HBA must use the regular Eyesight cameras. I don't know if that was the first time it happened for me or just the first time I noticed the message.
