Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a 175GB install on PC

The console version will probably be around 120GB as well?

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a 175GB install on PC

Declaring war on your data cap

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is the biggest game of the year. Best-selling? Maybe eventually because Call of Duty is always a heavy hitter. (Right now, NPD points to Mortal Kombat 11 as moving the most units.) But in terms of taking up space, Modern Warfare will be unrivaled.

Activision recently revealed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's minimum and recommended PC specs, and one requirement sticks out like a sore thumb: It's a 175GB install. We're still at the point where a game taking up 100GB qualifies as absolutely giant, so Modern Warfare nearly doubling that is staggering.

There's a chance this is a misprint, a la the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order specs from yesterday. Xbox lists the digital edition at 100MB (which is obviously incorrect); PlayStation doesn't specify any file size.

If it's accurate, the 175GB can likely be chalked up to any number of things: ultra high-resolution textures, huge maps, CGI cutscenes, a bunch of language options, and a general lack of compression. This isn't even the first eye-popping install size today; Red Dead Redemption 2 needs 150GB. Your hard drive gently weeps.

Here are the minimum and recommended PC specs for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare:

Minimum specs:
  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7 or Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-4340, AMD FX-6300
  • GPU: Nvidia GTX 670/1650, AMD Radeon HD 7950
  • RAM: 8GB
  • DirectX: 12.0
  • HDD: 175GB

Recommended specs:
  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K, AMD Ryzen 1600X
  • GPU: Nvidia GTX 970/1660, AMD Radeon R9 390/RX 580
  • RAM: 12GB
  • DirectX: 12.0
  • HDD: 175GB
