Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 Isn't 300 GB After All

Activision has clarified that Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 won’t actually require a 300 GB download despite previous messaging.

Players began to panic about the size of this year’s Call of Duty after noticing its Xbox store page yesterday. At the time, the page listed that the game would require a 309.85 GB download for those hoping to hop into the post-Cold War first-person shooter when it launches this fall. That'll put a pretty big dent in the hard drive of most PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S consoles, so players were, understandably, very concerned.

The company has since cleared up the confusion in a post on X/Twitter. Activision’s hit FPS franchise has been known to demand large amounts of storage in recent years, but fans can rest easier known that Black Ops 6 won't take up quite as much space.

Activision wrote, “Correction: The estimated file size currently displayed on the Black Ops 6 pre-order pages does not represent the download size or disk footprint for Black Ops 6. The sizes as shown include the full installations of Modern Warfare II, Modern Warfare III, Warzone and all relevant content packs, including all localized languages combined which is not representative of a typical player install experience.”
