Warzone file size changes incoming with Season 2 Reloaded update
As part of the Season 2 Reloaded update for Call of Duty: Warzone, Activision is making changes to reduce the overall size of the game.
In a new blog post detailing Season 2 Reloaded, the company has shared an update on how they plan to reduce Warzone & Modern Warfare file size on consoles & PC.
In order to get the file size down, the Season 2 Reloaded update, which will go live March 30 at 11PM PT, will be a larger than usual download to optimize and change up the files to compress and better manage them.
Enhancements to the overall content management system has been made possible through data optimization and streamlining content packs needed for individual game modes. This will come after a larger than usual, one-time update for Season Two Reloaded, which will include these optimizations and is necessary in order to reduce the overall footprint; future patch sizes for Modern Warfare and Warzone are expected to be smaller than the one set to release on March 30 at 11PM PST.
Along with the ability to remove individual modes that are no longer played, owners of the full Modern Warfare experience will see more space freed on their platform of choice. However, those who want to continue playing Campaign, Multiplayer, and/or Special Ops will need to reinstall the optimized Content Packs, which will be released alongside and shortly after the Season Two Reloaded update.
The following is the approximate reduction that will be seen for both the free-to-play Warzone and full Modern Warzone/Warzone files on each platform:
- PlayStation 5: 10.9 GB (Warzone Only) / 30.6 GB (Warzone and Modern Warfare®)
