As the joke continues to be told, the file sixe for Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare is outrageously large. While it is understandable as to why with the amount of high-detailed textures, patches, and content as the game is being pumped with new updates constantly, it is surprising that Infinity Ward has not went to decipher a way in compressing the game’s digital footprint on supported systems.
However, the developer has pressed for months that the team would pursue minimizing the amount of space each update would take up as the game continues to grow. And while it is reassuring, much signs of major chipping at the size of the aforementioned updates is not visible.
But in a new patch that went live for the game this week, players can find the game’s file size decrease by roughly 25 GB. Infinity Ward Production Director Paul Haile disclosed on Twitter that the update will go live this Monday.
Haile continues by explaining that the team has shifted the high resolution textures to a separate texture pack for console which reduces the space asked. As for PC, users can find a new function to stream high resolution assets dynamically which will reduce the amount of space for the game. Ultimately, this update benefits players on all systems supported for the game.
Recently for Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Treyarch pressed that the game will be about 90 GB on current-gen machinery. But for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, the game treads well into the 130 GB territory. You can read the full report by heading here.
