Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare may require at least 130GB of your hard drive when the game launches November 4th.
According to Call of Duty website Charlie Intel, the back of a Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Legacy box states that the combined package of Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered has an install size of 130GB. The box was obtained through French retailer Micromania, which has started to hand out empty boxes “with the Modern Warfare Remastered campaign code for those that pre-purchased the PS4 version.” Customers are supposed to return to the store on launch day to receive the actual Infinite Warfare disc.
Activision has not confirmed the exact size of the package, but if Modern Warfare Remastered requires almost 40GB, then that would leave Infinite Warfare with the remaining 90GB. Possible contributions to the large file size can include PlayStation 4 Pro support for higher fidelity of graphics or the inclusion of the six multiplayer maps coming to Modern Warfare Remastered at a later date. Last year’s Call of Duty entry, Black Ops III, required at least 60GB of hard drive space.
The high file size may be the new standard as Gears of War 4, releasing this week, needs at least 80GB of space. Those with 500GB hard drives may feel the squeeze when one package takes up a fifth of the space, but it is also important to note the Xbox One supports external hard drives and the internal PlayStation 4 hard drive can be easily swapped with a larger one.
