Call of Duty: Vanguard had its big official unveiling earlier today, with the game set to arrive for Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on November 5, and to the surprise of no one, it's going to take up plenty of storage space.
However, despite a listing of 270.05GB cropping up on the Microsoft Store (causing plenty of panic!), it turns out the base game starts at a more reasonable 75GB on Xbox One, and 95GB on Xbox Series X and Series S.
As The Verge's Tom Warren notes above, the figure of 270.05GB appears to reference everything featured in the Cross-Gen bundle, which includes both the Xbox One and Series X|S versions of the game, the upcoming betas for the respective consoles, and five 10.11MB content packs.
We've checked, and all of that content does indeed add up to just over 270GB. Phew!
Of course, there's still the potential for some massive day-one and future updates, so we may as well get used to the fact that Call of Duty: Vanguard will be a sizeable game as expected. But at least it won't be 270GB!
