That's ridiculuos for just a game that its premise is to kill , die and respawn.

Eonjay950d ago

The crazy space requirements is why I don't own Black Ops Cold War even though I am dedicated to every black ops game. I won't support this stupidity.

Gardenia950d ago

I just don't understand where it is coming from. It's only one map ffs. Where else is the space from? Sound, weapons, characters? That can't be, other games don't have this problem.

rdgneoz3950d ago

Meanwhile you have MMOs that are half the size...

Mr Logic950d ago

They don't use as much compression as most games to squeeze as much out of the weak CPUs.

Bobertt950d ago

They don't optimize the game or the updates because they rather pay the devs to make battlepass skins. Cold War is the buggiest cod i have seen in a while. Xclusive ace did a video about the lag and latency in multiplayer and he concluded it was because of SBMM. He says in older games they looked for the best match based on ping but now they search based on the best skill matchup the algorithm can come up with so you can get put in a game with shit latency even though it's a dedicated server. Every update seems to break something else.

I guess they’re going to be sailing us keys to unlock the game you installed in the HDD/SSD like the PC 🤦🏿 🤷🏿
Whatever happened to full games in the physical version, now you have “games patches “ close or bigger than the game day one

I would be interested to know how many gigs of it is paid addon content like skins...

At this rate, it will soon struggle to fit on the next-gen consoles too.

CobraKai950d ago

It already has. I don’t like the thought of COD taking up a massive chunk of my 4TB external drive.

Nodoze950d ago

LOL. Activision cares not about your drive. Cannot be bothered to optimize.

Shiken950d ago (Edited 950d ago )

RIP Series S Warzone players...

Hell at this rate, PS5 won't be able to handle the next big update after this one either. Activation really needs to figure out compression techniques, because there is no reason for this kimd of bloating.

Relientk77950d ago

Shrink your damn file sizes geez. Activision are ridiculous

MasterChief3624950d ago (Edited 950d ago )

I really wish I could choose not to download Warzone on the PC version. They finally gave us the option of choosing specific components to download, as opposed to downloading everything. But it only goes as far as "Do you want single player AND multiplayer? Or only one?" and that "multiplayer" is a package deal. You can't download just the standard multiplayer stuff. I'm not sure why...

It's really frustrating, and Activision needs to find some way to compress things better. I know it's been a theme of past console generations for the games to start taking up more and more space, but Activision is taking it WAY too far.

Not to mention the concern that the next-gen consoles so far have left way too much to be desired in terms of storage space. Considering the ballooning size of games nowadays, there's no excuse for the consoles to come in less than a couple terabytes of usable storage. SSD storage is cheaper now than ever before. We're no longer living in a world where it costs hundreds of dollars for significant storage. Manufacturers need to not cheap out on this stuff.

Redlife2g950d ago

Huh? I have the pc version and I only have the single player and standard multi-player installed... Not warzone

I know this because one day I wanted to try it out and it was asking me to download it so I said no.

MasterChief3624950d ago (Edited 950d ago )

They must have changed it, but if you Google "change install warzone", the highlighted result is a numbered list of how to do it, and it says, "Uncheck the content you wish to uninstall. (WARZONE CANNOT BE UNINSTALLED.) Campaign. Multiplayer. Special Ops. Survival. Select Confirm." (capitalization for emphasis)

Unfortunately I wasn't able to check if it changed because I can't actually find Modern Warfare on Battle Net. Only Black Ops 4 and Cold War. Not sure what's going on there. But to clarify, I am talking about Modern Warfare, not Black Ops Cold War. Just in case that needed clarification.

Edit: Hilarious. Modern Warfare is now basically accessed from "Warzone" on Battle Net. I tried installing it just now and it still has the issue. I can't install it without installing Warzone. So I'm not sure what you're talking about unless Cold War is different.
