Modern Warfare & Warzone Season 5 update to be large file, but reduce game size

Infinity Ward’s production lead has shared some information about the Season 5 patch update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone.

The new update, which will deliver Season 5 content, will go live on August 4 at 11PM PT across all platforms.

In a series of tweets, Infinity Ward dev says that the overall update will be a ‘big update’ size for players, but on consoles, once the installation is done, the game’s size will actually be reduced overall.

`

this means the
download will be big, but the overall size of the game will actually
shrink on your consoles after you download the patch, even though
we’re adding a bunch of new content for the
season.

He confirms that reducing the game size and being wary of console storage is important to the team, and they will continue to optimize and work to ensure the game is efficient as possible on all platforms.

`

its a priority
for us to keep working on reducing the overall size of MW & WZ
on your hard drives, but at the same time also delivering new seasons
for everyone to enjoy. we’ll continue to work on this and keep
pushing space reductions out with future updates.
