Treyarch Clarifies Black Ops 6 Installation Size: Not as Large as Feared

The anticipated release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 may initially suggest a staggering 300GB for its installation size, yet Treyarch indicates that such a figure does not accurately reflect what most players will encounter.

The concern that Call of Duty: Black Ops 6's digital footprint will take up to 300GB has been alleviated, preserving valuable space on gamers' storage devices.

Concerns were amplified earlier when the Xbox Store listed the installation size of Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 as 300GB, causing a wave of worry among fans about the significant storage space they would need to allocate. However, the clarification from Call of Duty's social media channels reveals that the 300GB figure was overstated.

The reason behind the confusion has been elucidated: the Xbox Store's listing erroneously included the size of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Modern Warfare 3, Warzone, and various relevant content packs alongside Black Ops 6, leading to a misinterpretation of the required installation space as not reflective of the standard gaming setup.

Since the pairing of Warzone and Modern Warfare over four years ago, Call of Duty titles have continued to be offered in bundles, including the possibility of consolidating several games within the Black Ops 6 installation itself.

Had the 300GB figure been accurate, Black Ops 6 would have been the largest installment in the franchise by a significant margin, prompting relief among enthusiasts. Yet, the precise size of Black Ops 6 as a standalone game remains unknown. It is important to note that individual Call of Duty titles have often exceeded 200GB with subsequent updates and patches.

The much-anticipated Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 is poised for a grand premiere on October 25, and will be accessible on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox gaming systems. For an in-depth look at the game, including insights from the developers at Treyarch, our comprehensive preview offers detailed coverage.

Expectations for a lengthy campaign in Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 should be tempered, as the developers have indicated it will align with the duration typical of the franchise's renowned campaigns.
