Over the years, Call of Duty titles have gotten bigger and better which has resulted in the games file size continuously growing. Call of Duty: Black Ops currently sits over 200GB along with Warzone adding another sizeable 50GB, so for players that have both games installed it can take up a serious amount of that well needed hard drive space.
This can be quite a big issue for players as a file of this size leaves very little space for any other games on some consoles, and to rub salt in the wound, each new update adds even more to the file size.
Now, it seems that Activision have addressed this issue as they claim that Vanguard will feature new technology that will see a significant decrease in the file size.
The official Call of Duty Twitter account took to the platform to share the news with fans, the post read “Good news for hard drives everywhere: #Vanguard’s install size at launch will be significantly below previous #CallOfDuty releases.”
“New on-demand texture streaming tech expected to save up to 30%-50%+ on next-gen console and PC hard drive disk space”.
At the moment it is unclear if this new technology will be optional, this could come as concerning news for some players who don’t have the best network connection.
Of course we won’t have too much longer to wait until we find out as we draw closer the Vanguards release.
