If you’re a Destiny 2 player, chances are you’re looking forward to the next big expansion for the game called Shadowkeep, which will be released this October 1. Now,if you’re planning on buying it at launch, and you’re someone with limited disc space on your consoles’ hard disk, you might want to start clearing space now. According to Bungie, the Destiny 2 Shadowkeep file size is at a whopping 165GB!
This was posted over on the PS4 subreddit, where the PlayStation Store listing for Destiny 2 Shadowkeep lists the same — that it requires 165GB hard drive storage space as of 9.17.19.
Now, before anyone reacts angrily at Bungie, note that the 165GB Destiny 2 Shadowkeep file size is not 100 percent entirely accurate. As Reddit user admiralvic explains, this big file size is most likely the entirety of the expansion along with Destiny 2, etc.
Well, yes and no.
The thing a lot of other commenters seem to forget is this is install size. Right now Destiny 2: Forsaken is 82.71GB, which is literally at that 165GB mark. There is literally no way Shadowkeep is the size of Destiny 2 and Forsaken combined. Odds are Shadowkeep will bring this up to like 100GB/200GB (it’s already more than 165GB, so it has to be wrong) or we already have all the parts of Shadowkeep and it’s just a matter of getting the key (very unlikely).
Not that this makes drive space acceptable, just that it’s far less than meets the eye.
I suggest keeping an open mind first before jumping to conclusions, but then again, I could be wrong and it really is 165GB. If so, well, get ready to clear some space or upgrade your hard disk.
