PlayStation 5: 133GB
Xbox One: 93GB
Xbox Series X|S: 136GB

The first copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on PS5 appears to be in the wild, and it’s given a first indication of the game’s potential file size.

An image of the back of the PS5 box art for the game was sent to us on Twitter, and it showcases a close up at the minimum hard drive space the game will require.

The listing says the game needs 285GB space minimum, which, well, is a lot. We’d note that the physical game copy wording usually over estimates the size to account for potential post launch updates, as well as other content that may come down the line

Fuck me, that's huge!

(that's what she said...)

What's with games needing double the disc space on PS as they do on the Xbox?

Can delete separate parts of the game so it’s not too bad. Will delete zombies and campaign, only care for PvP and WZ.

Sucker Punch figured out how to compress 200 meter x 200 meter land textures (with foliage) down to 2 MB, and Ghost of Tsushima still ended up gorgeous.

Call of Duty devs are out here devouring 5 GB with a single gun model or some shit.

This is absolutely fucking stupid, lmao.

Yeah, I guess it's time to distance myself from the COD series again if this is going to be the norm for them.

That's just stupid considering most players will keep this installed all year round and install the next years franchise right after......just shy of 300GB for a game. I assume this can play from slower external storage as itS BC?
 
Can people stop using compression nonsense. Why would they install compressed data that has to be decrompressed everytime its used? Obviously COD games are big because the campaigns have vastly different locations and additional MP and zombie maps with 4k assets. Even Wolfenstein is 55GB with tons of reused assets half the campaign length and SP only

I was on the fence about cod this year, but this has really put me off, just seems like they're taking the piss. Why could it possibly be so big? Uncompressed multi language audio? Poorly compressed video, poorly compressed assets?

That is absolutely insane.
I've been off and on with COD and shit like this makes me not want to deal with it at all anymore.

Yeah I’m passing on COD this year. I had planned to get it but storage space on next gen systems is going to make me be more selective.

I was thinking of gifting a Series S for my nephew. He only wants to play COD and Fifa. But the HD size and the COd instal is going to make that tricky. I might, have to look into storage options...

Because its compressed on the disk then decompressed into GPU memory.
