Par for the course for a Call of Duty game…
Ridiculously large install sizes have been an issue for Call of Duty games for a while now, and it’s an issue that’s made even worse by patches that often kick up those numbers even more. It doesn’t seem like this is a trend that the recently revealed Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will buck.
The game’s listing on the Microsoft Store is now up and has full details on various aspects of its release. It also mentions that it has a ridiculous file size of over 100 GB- 100.4 GB, to be precise. Call of Duty fans have been dealing with this issue for a while now, so this doesn’t come as too much of a surprise, but it’s still disappointing that this is something people will have to contend with to play the game.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War launches for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 13, and will also be coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X. On next-gen consoles, the game will be $10 costlier than current-gen versions, but will be running at 4K and 120 Hz, along with several other technical upgrades.
Several details have emerged on the game’s campaign and how it promises to be more different than previous Call of Duty campaigns. Meanwhile, a multiplayer reveal is set for September 9.
