Warzone and Modern Warfare file sizes will be cut significantly

4.8
The Call of Duty Warzone and Modern Warfare file sizes will be significantly reduced following a new 50GB+ update for the games.

Following the update, which launches on March 30 at 11pm PST/March 31 at 7am UK, the Warzone file size will be cut by as much a 14.2GB, and the Modern Warfare/Warzone file size will be slashed by as much as 33.6GB, depending on the given platform.

“This will come after a larger than usual, one-time update for Season Two Reloaded, which will include these optimizations and is necessary in order to reduce the overall footprint; future patch sizes for Modern Warfare and Warzone are expected to be smaller”, Activision said.


The update in question weighs in at 52GB on PlayStation consoles, 57.8GB on Xbox consoles, and 52.4GB on PC (Warzone only) / 133.6GB (Warzone and Modern Warfare).

After the update, Warzone and Modern Warfare file sizes will be reduced by the following amounts:

PS5: 10.9GB (Warzone Only) / 30.6GB (Warzone and Modern Warfare)
PS4: 10.9GB (Warzone Only) / 30.6GB (Warzone and Modern Warfare)
Xbox Series X/S: 14.2GB (Warzone Only) / 33.6GB (Warzone and Modern Warfare)
Xbox One: 14.2GB (Warzone Only) / 33.6GB (Warzone and Modern Warfare)
PC: 11.8GB (Warzone Only) / 30.6GB (Warzone and Modern Warfare)


Following the launch of Season 2 in February, Activision said the latest versions of Black Ops Cold War, Modern Warfare and Warzone may be too large to fit on a 500GB PS4.

It said players can free up storage space by deleting data packs as follows:

Black Ops Cold War: At the main menu, press R3 to go to “File Management.” You will then be able to delete any content you may not have played in a while. The exact content to choose can be found in the Storage Management article linked below.

Modern Warfare/Warzone: At the main menu, press Options, select the “General” tab, then scroll down to “Game Installs.” From here, you can delete any content you have not played in a while.

Yeah I got the update and then had to download 2 additional compatibility packs So the base game file might be smaller but they just bloody moved it to external files.

For just MW/WZ MP (I don't play warzone) it's 191GB! or there about on XBSX. (All single player and specops stuff isn't installed)
