Call of Duty: Modern Warfare cannot fit in 250GB SSDs anymore

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is well known for its insane patch sizes on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but now the game has seemingly passed the 250GB mark on PC, making the game large enough to saturate the storage within affordable 240GB and 256GB SSDs. 

Back in August, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare became over 200GB in size, with patches frequently being over 30GB in size. Back then, the game’s latest update made Call of Duty Modern Warfare 242GB in size, which, in time, compressed to around 201GB. Since then, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has gotten even larger, making the game too large to update on a mainstream 240/250/256GB SSD. This news came to us through a popular Tweet from @BattleNonSense on Twitter. 

For many gamers, these insane storage requirements will be more than enough to force gamers to say goodbye to their Modern Warfare/Warzone installs. On consoles, the game takes up a large portion of their console’s stock 500GB or 1TB HDDs; and for SSD users on PC, the game demands a large amount of their premium storage space. For many, the storage requirements of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is pushing players away from the game, and the problem’s only getting worse. 

The question now is when Modern Warfare will reach its peak size? Will future updates push the game past the 300GB mark, or will Infinity Ward attempt to lower the game’s storage requirements through new optimisation techniques or the removal of legacy content from the title. As it stands, Modern Warfare storage requirements are already too large for many console/PC gamers to handle, and this problem will get worse before it gets better.  

 
Infinity Ward needs to do something to address this problem, as these excessive storage requirements are pushing customers away from their game.
