Capcom Will Check Whether DRM Affects Resident Evil Village's Performance

Capcom has decided to look into the reason for the performance issues in the PC version of Resident Evil Village. The company will take a look at adopted DRM security measure. It was also revealed that the release of Re:Verse has been delayed.

  • Capcom will investigate the cause of performance issues affecting Resident Evil Village on PC;
  • It may be due to the DRM protection used by the company;
  • It has also been reported that the release of the spin-off titled Re:Verse has been pushed back to 2022.

The PC version of Resident Evil Village met with a very positive reception from the players and reviewers. The game recorded the best launch on Steam in the history of the franchise. This does not mean that it is free of problems. It turns out that Capcom's game suffers on PC from fps drops, which do not occur in the console version. The company is to take a closer look at the matter and find the reason.

The studio noticed the problem when information appeared online that the pirated version of the game performed better than the original. Digital Foundry ran tests to check the validity of these claims. A simple comparison revealed that Resident Evil Village with the crack implemented does not experience sudden performance drops. This leads to a conclusion that Capcom's DRM protection may be responsible for the problem.

The company assured that it is aware of the accusations that appeared on the Internet, and it is already working on fixing the situation. It is possible that soon the Pc version of the game will work in a manner comparable to the console version. It is doubtful that we will find out what the true source of the problems was.

This is not the only information concerning the Resident Evil series, which recently appeared in the web. Capcom also revealed an update on the multiplayer spin-off game titled Re:Verse. Unfortunately, the game suffered another delay. Originally, it was supposed to come out on the market at the same time as Village. Currently the release is scheduled for 2022.
