At the time of writing, there appears to be no way to revert to an earlier version of the game, and Capcom has yet to acknowledge the issue.

The PC versions of popular Capcom remakes have had issues in the past, with the developer having to allow players to undo an update to the PC version that brought them in line with PS5 and Xbox Series console updates.

However, in a welcome change for PC gamers, 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 serious performance issues at times, with some suggesting that the problem lay in part with Denuvo, which is running in the background.

This suggestion was given further credence when a “cracked” version of the game was released in July 2021 that removed copy protection and worked significantly better than the official version as a result.
