Despite rumors to the contrary, Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 will not have a file size of over 300 GB, and we now know exactly how much storage space the game takes up.

It’s certainly no secret that Call of Duty games have been growing in size over the last few years. In fact, for many fans, it’s an issue that’s becoming all too prevalent.

Nowadays, if a COD fan wants to keep that year’s game installed, as well as Warzone Battle Royale, they’re forced to set aside hundreds of gigabytes of storage on their hard drives.

And now, Black Ops 6 might just be the breaking point for many users, as it finally forces COD HQ to surpass 300 GB. However, the game itself will not take up that much space.

Black Ops 6 File Size

According to the Xbox Game Pass listing for the upcoming Call of Duty game, Black Ops 6 will take up approximately 144 GB of your console’s storage space.

The game’s exact file size will differ depending on your platform of choice. Next-gen versions often require less space due to more efficient storage.

We’ll update this article when the exact size is revealed for all platforms.

Previously, Microsoft’s online storefront reported that Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 would take up approximately 309.8 GB of storage space on consoles.

Activision has since clarified that Black Ops 6 will be available to download separately at launch and the original 300 GB file size listed on the Xbox Store included MW2, MW3, and Warzone.

Black Ops 6 File Size Over 300 GB

This reveal caused alarm among Call of Duty fans, who didn’t think Activision’s shooter could get any more bloated.

Thankfully, we now know that this gargantuan estimation was simply accounting for the entire Call of Duty HQ application, which includes previous COD titles such as MW2, MW3, and Warzone.

The actual size will be much less than 300 GB and will be revealed closer to launch. Here’s the full statement:

What’s more, if previous COD titles are any indication, Activision will allow players to select and install Campaign, Multiplayer, and Zombie components of Black Ops 6 separately, allowing game owners to reduce the necessary file size significantly.

We’ll have to wait and see exactly how big Treyarch’s upcoming title is upon release! After all, rumor has it we’ll be seeing two full Zombies maps available on launch day.
