Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is taking up a whole 151.4GB of space on PS5 SSDs after its day one patch was applied earlier today. The game was a somewhat reasonable file size during the one week of early access to its campaign, but a 40.156GB update to get it ready for Friday's launch has changed things. PS5 users now have a title taking up more than one-fifth of their internal SSD.
It was thought that Activision's decision to break the upcoming Warzone 2 away from Modern Warfare 2 would reduce its digital footprint, but that doesn't appear to be the case. While there is a separate package you need to download for the next big Battle Royale title, it takes up a tiny 2.55GB. The good news is you can delete the single player campaign once you're done with it, and the same goes for the co-op mode Spec Ops.
Call of Duty games are notorious for taking up huge amounts of space on console hard drives, with 2019's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare at points closing in on 200GB. Since Modern Warfare 2 already begins life at 150GB, it would come as no surprise if it too took up just as much space.
