Soon after this, several other players appeared to confirm these reports, with user simone_the_one then saying that the problem was also affecting the Resident Evil 2 remake.
While not as common, some other players reported that the HDR in both games is also not working correctly in some instances following the update.

At the time of writing, there appears to be no way to revert to a previous version of the game, and Capcom has yet to acknowledge the issue.
The PC versions of Capcom’s acclaimed remakes have faced issues in the past, with the developer having to allow players to roll back an update to the PC version that brought them in line with the PS5 and Xbox Series console updates.
However, in a welcome change for PC players, the controversial DRM software Denuvo was removed from the Steam version of Resident Evil Village this week.
When the game was initially released in May 2021, players complained that the PC version suffered from severe performance issues at times, with some suggesting that the problem lay partly with Denuvo, which runs in the background.
This suggestion was given more credence when a ‘cracked’ version of the game was released in July 2021 which removed the copy protection and ran noticeably better than the official release as a result.
