Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone is a massive game. At the launch last year, Activision claimed PC users would need 175GB of free space for the game. If you were a hardcore fan and decided to install a 250GB SSD just to play COD then you can no longer use it. Ever since launch, the game has gotten bigger and bigger causing storage issues across PS4, Xbox One and PC. However, the biggest culprit is the PC version which after the August update weighed in at over 200GB. Now after the latest update, the game no longer fits on a 250GB SSD.
A user shared his frustration on Twitter asking Activision and Blizzard to please split up the single-player and multiplayer modes to free up space. Let’s be honest, no one is really playing the single-player mode anymore so it would free up a few gigs. The user shared a screenshot of his installation on an SSD only used for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone. The 232GB storage drive is completely out of space.
Luckily, console owners are now able to delete parts of the game which they are not using. However, the feature is not available on PC and there’s no word whether or not it will arrive. Until then, PC gamers are forced to deal with a massive game that requires a massive amount of storage. With every update, the game asks for more storage space. Activision must have sold HDDs and SSDs for companies by the boatload already by just updating COD.

This whole situation makes us scared for the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and just how much storage space the game will need. Both the PS5 and Xbox Series X are limited in storage space so the fight for smaller game files must commence.
