After hearing reports from players that are having storage problems, Activision will be reducing Call of Duty’s file size, again
A new update will significantly reduce Call of Duty’s file size, it is set to bring the size of Warzone and Modern Warfare down by around 33GB. This announcement was first issued in a blog post on Call of Duty’s website, it details just what gamers can expect from this update and what new file sizes they will be seeing.
They also detailed just how they would be making this change “Along with the ability to remove individual modes that are no longer played, owners of the full Modern Warfare experience will see more space freed on their platform of choice. However, those who want to continue playing Campaign, Multiplayer, and/or Special Ops will need to reinstall the optimized Content Packs, which will be released alongside and shortly after the Season Two Reloaded update.”
They also went on to say “Following the update, the Warzone file size will be reduced by between 10.9 GB and 14.2 GB, and the Modern Warfare/Warzone file size will be reduced by between 30.6 GB and 33.6 GB, depending on your platform.”
“The following is the approximate reduction that will be seen for both the free-to-play Warzone and full Modern Warzone/Warzone files on each platform:
PlayStation 5: 10.9 GB (Warzone Only) / 30.6 GB (Warzone and Modern Warfare®)
PlayStation 4: 10.9 GB (Warzone Only) / 30.6 GB (Warzone and Modern Warfare®)
Xbox Series X / Xbox Series S: 14.2 GB (Warzone Only) / 33.6 GB (Warzone and Modern Warfare®)
Xbox One: 14.2 GB (Warzone Only) / 33.6 GB (Warzone and Modern Warfare®)
PC: 11.8 GB (Warzone Only) / 30.6 GB (Warzone and Modern Warfare®)”
This won’t be the first time we have seen a reduction in the games file size either, Modern Warfare and Warzone had their file sizes reduced last year, along with Call of Duty’s Season 5 update which also reduced the file size.
However, this decision to reduce the games file size comes after the February update when players started reporting that they were having some storage issues.
This news should come as good news to fans who struggle to fit all their favourite games on their devices, hopefully now we will have space to add in a few more games along with our favourite Call of Duty titles.
