Ray tracing has quietly been removed from the Resident Evil 2 and 3 remakes on Steam. According to some PC users, HDR also doesn’t seem to be functioning correctly as well. Capcom has yet to acknowledge the issue and there’s currently no way for players to revert back to a previous version of the game to see if it fixes the problem.
A thread was recently posted to the Resident Evil 3 Steam page by user DendeThe1st who claimed that a new update to the game seemed to have removed the option to enable ray tracing for some reason. Several other users also corroborated the reports, with many also claiming that the issue was present in the Resident Evil 2 remake as well.

Other players also noted that HDR was not working correctly either in both games. Thankfully, the issue only seems to be impacting the PC versions of the games as there hasn’t been any reports about console versions being affected.
It’s unclear why this happened, though many theorised that it could’ve been an oversight on either Capcom or NVIDIA’s part. The publisher didn’t warn players that this would happen suggesting that it was simply a mistake. Wccftech also reported that Resident Evil 7 might’ve also had its ray tracing options disabled but it couldn’t be verified yet. Others reported that ray tracing still seems to be fine on the recent Resident Evil 4 remake.
Capcom recently removed the controversial DRM software Denuvo from the Steam version of Resident Evil Village which fans really appreciated. The company has yet to address these ongoing ray tracing issues on its previous remakes but hopefully we’ll hear an update soon about plans to correct the mistake.
The Resident Evil 2 and 3 remakes are currently available on PC via Steam as well as PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
