It's perhaps the worst joke in FPS games right now - Call of Duty update sizes. Whenever new updates arrive for Call of Duty: Warzone, Modern Warfare, or Black Ops: Cold War, the first question for players is "how badly is my hard drive or SSD going to get bullied today".
Updates of over 50GB are now the norm, and CoD fans have gotten used to deleting other games just to be able to cram in all the changes that need to be made to the games. Though this time, Warzone players might be disappointed with the lack of changes they're seeing in exchange for a huge patch.
If you're just interested in playing Warzone on PC you might want to really consider getting rid of Modern Warfare. Although the latest update to the games is a massive 133.6GB, the extra details added to Warzone are minimal according to PC Gamer. If you're not playing Modern Warfare anymore and you get rid of it before you download the next patch, you're looking at a significantly smaller 52.4GB for the update. This is for PC players, though, if you're on consoles you're looking at 52GB for PlayStation and 57.8GB for Xbox.
That being said, those are the install sizes for the game, the games become a little smaller once they've nestled into your SSDs and hard drives. Warzone shrinks 11.8GB and Modern Warfare goes down by about 30GB it seems. You could fill this extra space with other games, but when it comes time to install yet another update for CoD you'll have to potentially get rid of them once again.
The end is near. :scream:
But we've got you covered. Season Two is reloading with more in #BlackOpsColdWar and #Warzone.

So it might be time to do some spring cleaning - if you're really not playing Modern Warfare anymore it might save you a lot of time to put it away for another day. So what is coming to the game that would require huge update sizes? Well for Warzone that seems to be zombies, and that seems to be it. Cold War is getting a bunch of new multiplayer maps, modes, operators, a sniper rifle and more for Season Two Reloaded, so that's exciting for Cold War enthusiasts.
As PC Gamer points out, the big update for Warzone might be laying some groundwork for the upcoming new map. Once Verdansk is finally overrun with undead it'll be time to see something fresh, and this update might be a step towards making that happen.
