Almost since its release, it became clear that the updates for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and its parallel battle-royale, Warzone, would be a drawback because of its size, and while Infinity Ward apologized for it months ago, the situation hasn’t changed much. Although according to recent statements by production manager Paul Haile, the studio does not forget this matter and has already offered alternatives, especially to console players.
Both Modern Warfare and Warzone are massive experiences
“Both Modern Warfare and Warzone are massive experiences with lots of ways to play and new content constantly arriving, and we are aware of the total download size,” Haile explained. “As a team, we are committed to updating the game with new free content, of course, but we have also taken steps to manage the footprint [on the hard drive], including the DLC package management screen for console users. This allows Gamers choose which DLC packages to keep and remove others to reclaim some space. “the developer told USGamer magazine.
The facilities management screen is in the General tab of the options category and, at the moment, there are 5 installed data packages , 3 of which correspond to the Special Operations and Survival modes, which could be deleted, in case of not frequenting these game formats. This is a tool that Infinity Ward added a few months ago but that not everyone uses.
Unfortunately, Modern Warfare and Warzone have other issues. Certain updates have caused a loop on the game’s startup screen, some players report arbitrary uninstalls, performance in Warzone is inconsistent, servers have had frequent issues in recent weeks and that, not to mention patches that do indeed rock between 10GB and 30GB, causing migraines in players with 512GB hard drive models, who may be forced to have only one additional game installed on their console.
At the time of writing this news and, with its complete packages and updates, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare size 190 GB on PlayStation 4 , just 13 days after the end of Season 3 multiplayer. The transition to season 4 will surely bring new downloads.
