Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is a juggernaut in terms of its file size on Xbox. With texture packs, additional content, and updates arriving every other week, it's constantly growing and evolving. Now, today's update to coincide with Season 4 Reloaded is causing a lot of frustration amongst Xbox Series X owners, as some are reporting that the full game is requiring an entire re-download.
Reports on Reddit and Twitter have described users seeing update sizes of around 200GB. It's a glitch that has happened before, but with the game's size increasing, it's becoming a more infuriating issue each time it occurs.
However, this doesn't seem to affect every user. We've tried it across two consoles here at Pure Xbox, and one is asking for the 200GB "update", while another is working properly, asking for the intended 11.4GB update.
In any case, it's still crazy that the full package for Call of Duty in 2021 sits at over 200GB, taking up a huge chunk of internal storage. With many hoping to dive into Season 4 Reloaded today, we're hoping this bug isn't too widespread.
Have you had to re-download Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War again? Drop us a comment and let us know.
Couldn't feel better about skipping Call of Duty. Modern games are bad enough as it is, CoD is another level. I don't think it will lead to cloud gaming but install sizes have to change.
It’s ridiculous. I deleted the game, can get about 3/4 decent sized games on my Xbox for what that takes up.
Maybe the install size is meant to use up more space limiting your options for other games so you are more likely to play the game and hopefully spend some money.
@SuperJoon it's ridiculous isn't it? Hitman 3 with all of the Hitman 1 and Hitman 2 content also installed takes up less than 70GB. It wouldn't surprise me if @Enigk has a point.
I picked up cod:mw for the singleplayer story, which was pretty fun. Warzone was a nice surprise, after the traditional multiplayer rounds. Glad I got it out of my system, and my xbo, before cold war dropped. These free to play updates that still require the entirety of the game to be installed, to play one mode is asinine. I'm fascinated at the masochism, when there are many a great games out there.
Did it to me on my PS4 pro with modern warfare all the time they didn't even bother trying to fix it
I still haven’t played this call of duty yet that’s way to
Not really when you have up to 2000GB or more available, plus the option for more cards on a shelf.
