Developer Infinity Ward has been gifting us all with weekly updates to both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and its free-to-play Battle Royale counterpart, Warzone, but honestly it’s all been getting a bit much. Modern Warfare is now probably taking up a huge chunk of space on whichever platform you play on, and the weekly updates are only making the problem worse.
In a recent interview with USGamer, production director Paul Haile spoke about the problem, which is now becoming a huge bugbear for players.
Haile told the publication: “Modern Warfare and Warzone are both massive experiences with tons of ways to play and new content being added regularly, and we are cognizant of the overall download size,
“As a team we are committed to updating the game with new free content of course, but have also taken steps for overall footprint management, including a DLC pack management screen for console users. This allows players to pick and choose which DLC packs they want to keep, and remove the others to recover more space.”
If you’ve yet to use the Modern Warfare data management screen, I highly recommend it if space is a problem for you! It will allow you to chop-and-change the content available to you, letting you cut out modes you don’t use (like the campaign you’ve probably now completed) in favour of new updates.
Modern Warfare is fast approaching the 200GB mark, with the most recent game update (from May 18) adding 31GB to the already very hefty load. As the roadmap continues, it’s looking like this is only going to get worse.
Hopefully this isn’t a problem we’ll see when the next generation of consoles launch. Newer games are really taking their toll on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4…
