We’re just one week away from the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. The latest entry in the franchise has been getting some positive buzz but has also shot itself in its own foot with some questionable exclusivity issues. Well, if you are still on board for this entry in the mega-franchise then you better clear some space on your hard drive. The install size for the game has just appeared on the Xbox Store and it’s an eye-watering 137.66 GB! And this is likely to increase with any patches and the inevitable content drops.
To give this some context Red Dead Redemption 2 clocks in at a relatively slim (in comparison) 98.62 GB. Fallout 4 is only 51.21 GB and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a pretty modest 40.03 GB. If your Xbox One only has a 500GB hard drive then Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will take up almost half of the available space on your hard drive (as the operating system takes up a sizeable chunk that can’t be removed).
