Activision Clarifies Call of Duty: Modern Warfare File Size; Original Launch Size is Around 70GB

Call of Duty fans are at the edge of their seats with just a little less than a week to go before Call of Duty: Modern Warfare drops to the world. However, fans were a little critical after the studio revealed the game’s whooping free space requirement of 175GB.

Activision took it upon themselves to respond to the comments, and reassure fans the 175GB size quoted expresses Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in its end-game form, including all planned DLC, updates, and so on. People spotted the smaller original launch size in an Arabian PlayStation Store page, showing a 61.78GB size for the title.

In each of the Specs, the HDD references HD space of 175GB. 175GB is the storage space we recommend players keep available in order to download the post-launch content we’ll be bringing to Modern Warfare. At launch, the initial download will be smaller.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare releases on October 25, 2019 for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One platforms.
