Xbox One Users Are Victim To Another Overly Large Patch For Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare

Currently in Infinity Ward’s latest entry for Call of Duty with 2019’s Modern Warfare, users are facing a very large nuisance in online lobbies. It is that the usable weapons in-game are being corrupt on screen refraining players from interacting with the game properly. But despite the problem, Infinity Ward has acted fast upon the problem and is shipping a patch to resolve the issue at hand.

However, while users on PlayStation 4 and PC are only being prompt to install a 1 GB client to remove the glitch, Xbox One owners are facing another issue. Instead of a simple install for the patch, players on Microsoft’s platform are being forced to install a 66 GB download to fix the issue in Modern Warfare.

Here is the statement provided by Infinity Ward on the oversized patch for Modern Warfare on Xbox One:

Due to an unforeseen bug with the Microsoft patch delivery process, this download requires Xbox users to redownload files they already have, but it does NOT impact the overall install size. We’re working closely with Microsoft to ensure future updates are smaller in size.

Although fans are of course outraged on the discovery for the install size, it definitely is not the first of a similar situation. Previously, fans were upset when learning that the update size for Season 4 earlier this year would be double of what is required on either competing platform. And now, the same story is being told for a nearly 2 GB patch months later.

Earlier on, Infinity Ward shipped Season 5 to Modern Warfare adding new game modes and expanding on the continuously growing Verdansk for Warzone. You can read the full overview by heading here.
