Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 disc for PlayStation 5 still requires a full install as it only contains 72MB of data.
As reported by MP1ST, if you were hoping to save some hard drive space on the PS5 by purchasing the physical disc, then you’re out of luck. It seems, at least on PS5, that there will be little to no difference in the hard drive space required for Modern Warfare 2.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 disc requires a lot of storage space!
In an image shared on MPST1, the information data for Modern Warfare 2 shows that the PS5 disc contains just 72.23MB. This is in comparison to the digital version on PS5 which weighs in at over 100GB. Which is typical of this series.
I own the digital version of Modern Warfare 2, and its size is currently at 117.7GB with the two campaign packs as well as the multiplayer installed. However, I am yet to install the co-op pack and Warzone 2. It might be safe to assume the file size could jump between 150GB and to 200GB.
Furthermore, MPS1ST reports that if you try to boot up Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 straight from the disc without the latest update, it won’t play. Which of course, isn’t surprising.
Did you buy Modern Warfare 2 physically or digitally?
So, it seems that there is practically no difference whether you buy Modern Warfare 2 physically or digitally. That being said, it’s still always nice to own a physical copy of a game in the modern digital age.
