Modern Warfare – Data Monster gives you a little hard drive back

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone were real memory hogs by the time they were released, and over time they have grown to a size that doesn't even fit on some hard drives. A new patch should help.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

The patch 1.28 is now also intended to address Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone PC players. If they have installed the game on a 250 GB hard drive, the storage medium has already reached its limits. The PC version is currently consuming 225 GB.

PlayStation Store: Order now

The patch 1.28 should go live on October 14, 2020 and finally enable PC gamers uninstall individual parts of the game. Until now, pure multiplayer players also have co-op and campaign modes on their computers, even if they never touch them. Modern Warfare Production Director Paul Haile announced on Twitter:

He has not yet revealed which parts of the game can actually be uninstalled. For example, several data packs can be removed on the PS4; these are for multiplayer, spec ops or survival mode.

With the Seasons, the game just got bigger and that upcoming Halloween event, which is on October 20th should start, will also take up new storage space. So it's time players were allowed to muck out a little.
