Here we go again! Activision has confirmed today that the file size for the upcoming November 13th launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will be expectedly large, clocking in at a massive 136GB on Xbox Series X|S.
That means it'll take up a significant portion of your internal storage, and keep in mind that due to being a next-gen title, you won't be able to run it off anything other than the internal SSD or a Seagate 1TB Expansion Card at launch.
For comparison, here's the full list of file sizes including for Xbox One:
- PlayStation 4: 95GB
- PlayStation 5: 133GB
- Xbox One: 93GB
- Xbox Series X|S: 136GB
- PC: 35 GB (Multiplayer Only) / 82GB (Full Game) / 125GB (Full Game on Ultra Graphics)
Fortunately, there is a way of reducing this file size if you're concerned about the large footprint. Activision has confirmed that you can choose to uninstall specific game mode packs, such as for Campaign or Zombies, which can be managed in-game through the “Account & Network” section of the Settings menu.
