That’s because the PC versions of the games, which have also received the updates, are now no longer working for some players.
Each game’s update includes new current-gen features including 4K support, improved framerates and ray tracing.

However, while this may be fine for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S owners whose systems can handle the upgrade, PC owners who were already playing on or close to the minimum requirements are now finding their PC can’t handle the games.
The game now requires Windows 10 and DirectX12, whereas before it could run on Windows 7/8 and DirectX11.
The minimum graphics card requirements have also been increased, from Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 / AMD Radeon R7 260x to Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 / AMD Radeon Rx 460.
UploadVR also reports that the updates are affecting some mods, most notably the popular Resident Evil 2 and 3 VR mods created by modder Praydog.
Once the upgrade has been installed, PC owners are unable to roll it back, meaning if their game no longer works after patching it they may be stuck with that situation.
