If you’re a Call of Duty fan who’s thinking about using a 250 GB SSD as a game drive, forget about it. Battle(non)sense has shared an image confirming that Modern Warfare will no longer fit on one, which isn’t too surprising based on Infinity Ward’s enthusiasm for massive patches.

According to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s system requirements page, the minimum storage requirement is now 246 GB. That’s 14 GB higher than a 250 GB SSD’s actual capacity (232 GB).

Is this a moot point, being that many users have migrated to larger SSDs? Maybe, but Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s 246 GB footprint is definitely big enough to raise eyebrows, even on 500 GB and/or 1 TB drives.

Battle(non)sense has pleaded with Activision and Blizzard to reduce the file size by splitting up Modern Warfare’s single-player, multi-player, and Warzone modes, but we’re pretty sure that’s going to fall on deaf ears. Infinity Ward had previously explained that the FPS was jam-packed with content, so big storage requirements should be expected.

Strangely, PC players do not have the option of deleting content to free up space. Only consoles get that privilege.
