Activision Confirms 130 GB Size Requirement For Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare


You might recall our post made last week about the supposedly required free storage space for the upcoming first-person shooter video game, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Well, if you were still holding out hope that the storage space requirement was false then we have some bad news for you. According to the publisher, Activision, the massive file size for the video game stands true, gamers will really need at least 130 GB of free storage space.

There was some shocking news for some gamers last week when it came out that Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare was going to require 130 GB of free storage space. This would mean quite a bit of space was going to be required from the default HDD in consoles such as the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Today the publisher, Activision, has confirmed that the video game currently being developed by Infinity Ward will need quite a bit of storage space, by alerting its fans through the official Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare FAQ page.

From the page, the post notes that the 130 GB storage requirement is used for both Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, multiplayer maps, and the day one patch. However, what the post lacks to note its readers is if gamers will be able to choose which video game installs on the console or PC system.

Regardless, it’s likely that gamers will take part in both video game campaigns and multiplayer modes when it launches so it’s best that you start preparing your free storage space sooner than later. If possible, perhaps upgrading your HDD to something that will allow more storage could be an ideal solution and future proofing.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare launches on November 4, 2016, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
