Activision and Infinity Ward released Season Five of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone earlier this week, and as we’ve come to expect, the new content requires plenty of additional disk space. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One updates take up 33.9 GB and 49.8 GB of storage, respectively, while the PC version demands 54 to 47 GB of storage.
Naturally, players have voiced their concerns about the ballooning install size, but what’s really worth criticizing is how PC players are being treated. While console owners have the option of uninstalling data packs to reduce Modern Warfare’s overall footprint, PC players have been excluded from this privilege. Needless to say, this makes little sense – the PC version is supposed to offer the highest level of customization.
According to one user, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare now takes up 227 GB of disk space on PC! We’re not sure if Activision and Infinity Ward will ever address this, but they did write an article on how console players can reduce their file size…
“Once the new Season of content has been integrated into your game, and provided you had the update prior to Season Five installed, Modern Warfare will have a decrease in overall footprint on console,” Activision wrote.
“A reminder, console players can choose also to uninstall/remove other data packs if no longer needed for a smaller overall file size. For detailed information on uninstalling/removing other data packs, read this article.“
