Warzone & Modern Warfare devs make major change to file size in Season 3

Warzone Season 3 has officially been announced and alongside major Caldera map changes and Godzilla vs Kong event, console players should find Modern Warfare and Warzone taking up much less space.

With Call of Duty: Warzone’s two maps, multiple modes, over 150 weapons, and almost 100 Operators, it’s no wonder that the game now has a massive file size. Another issue is that Warzone is still tied to Modern Warfare, so you essentially need to have both games installed.

Luckily, even though more content is being added to Warzone, including new weapons, Caldera map changes, and even Godzilla and King Kong, the devs confirmed that April 27’s Season 3 update will reduce Warzone’s file size — but after a larger download than usual.

With a console’s limited storage space, Warzone players have needed to uninstall other games just to make way for the latest updates. Hopefully, console players will find Warzone much less of a nuisance to have installed after the Season 3 update.

The Season 3 roadmap confirmed that the devs would be resizing Modern Warfare’s campaign, multiplayer, and Special Ops console DLC. They explained that once this optimization takes place, “the overall game footprint will be reduced for Warzone players.”

But, players might need to clear some space from their hard drive first, as the devs confirmed that “These changes will likely see a larger than usual download size for Warzone and Modern Warfare.”

Here are all of the DLC packages that you’ll be able to install or delete after the Season 3 update:

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare — Campaign DLC 1
  • Special Ops DLC 1
  • Multiplayer DLC 2
  • Campaign and Special Ops DLC 1
  • Multiplayer and Special Ops DLC 1

There’s been no confirmation of how big each of these MW DLC packs will be after the Season 3 update, nor big Warzone will be overall. But, console players should find Warzone taking up much less room on their console storage.
