Unsurprisingly, the next Call of Duty is going to be a beefy game.
Call of Duty games have become notorious for having ridiculously large storage requirements on all platforms, which is something that they keep doubling down on with similarly massive post-launch updates and patches. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, which is out in a little over a week, won’t be bucking that trend.
Recently, it was revealed that on PC, the shooter would require at least 175 GB of storage space (or 250 GB on max settings), and though requirements on consoles won’t be quite so ridiculous, they’re still nothing to scoff at. As revealed by the game’s Microsoft Store page, on the Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will require roughly 100 GB of free storage space.
The Xbox Series X’s internal SSD has 802 GB of usable storage space, while the Xbox Series S will reportedly offer just 364 GB. The latter especially might present a problem for those looking to get Black Ops Cold War on the console, especially seeing as Series S is a digital only console (and the external SSD is not particularly cheap).
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War launches for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 13. Recently, details were revealed on three missions from the game’s single player campaign- read more on that through here.
