That’s more than half of Xbox Series S’ usable storage space.
Activision revealed recently that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will require 136 GB of storage space to install on Xbox Series X/S, but it turns out the game’s install size is actually significantly larger. As revealed by a user on Reddit, the game’s final install size is actually much larger.
The game will allow players to install it in various distinct parts. The multiplayer requires 27.6 GB, Zombies mode requires 7.5 GB, while Dead Ops Arcade needs 11.8 GB. On the visuals front, the game’s HD texture pack needs 38.2 GB, while ray-tracing data needs 11.8 GB. Collectively, the game’s install size comes up to a whopping 187.9 GB.
On an Xbox Series S, which has just 364 GB of usable storage, that’s over half of your internal memory gobbled up by a single game. Essentially, if Xbox Series S owners install this and NBA 2K21, they’re pretty much almost out of memory. Things will be better on an Xbox Series X, which has 802 GB of usable internal storage, but nearly 190 GB for a game is still a ridiculous requirement.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War launches on November 13 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
