Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone before it, is going to be a very big game. One would have assumed this already based on how the past games were handled.
Now the listings for the game that have gone up from retailers like Microsoft show just much space it’ll take up on players’ consoles. The Standard Edition on the Xbox One is said to take up an approximate 100.04GB, according to the listing.
Microsoft’s listings for game have dutifully shown the file sizes in the past, and Black Ops Cold War is the same way with its different listings. The Ultimate Edition is a fraction larger while the game itself comes in at approximately 100GB.
That means a lot of people are going to have to clear off some space on their consoles if they want to get this game. This is especially true if you plan on keeping your other Call of Duty games.
Warzone and Modern Warfare grew to massive sizes after numerous updates even with some of those updates attempting to size down the files at times.
It’s unclear right now if the various parts of Black Ops Cold War will be handled in a similar way, but it seems likely given how that foundation has already been established in Modern Warfare.
Black Ops Cold War has the expected campaign and multiplayer modes included, but with it being a Treyarch game, it also has a Zombies mode. At any rate, you should start clearing up your consoles right now.
