Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Requires 175 GB of Hard Drive Space on PC

Activision’s Call of Duty reboot is a huge game, not only figuratively, but literally. Modern Warfare’s minimum system requirements, which have gone live on Battle.net, has its storage demands pegged at 175 GB.

This is even bigger than Red Dead Redemption 2 and Final Fantasy XV, which take up 150 GB and 148 GB, respectively. An NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 / NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 or AMD Radeon R9 390 / AMD Radeon RX 580 GPU is recommended for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Does Modern Warfare hold the world record for the biggest storage space requirement for a video game at launch? We think so. In 2018 we covered Final Fantasy 15 on PC, which was 148GB. The Rockstar launcher currently states Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC requires 150GB of HDD space. Modern Warfare tops both.
