If you’re a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare player, you’ve no doubt noticed that the game eats up a ton of disk space regardless of the platform you play on. And with Season 5 set to roll out in the next few days, some might be worried that it’ll take a ton more space.
Well, there’s some good news, and bad news. Production Directot at Infinity Ward Paul Haile confirmed that the Modern Warfare Season 5 download file would be big, but that it will shrink the overall file size.
hey all – season 5 is coming soon, and its big. with the update we're including all the new content for the season as well as optimizing our asset packs.

In addition to that, Haile states that reducing the file size for Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone is a “priority” for the studio. Check out the full statement from Haile below, in an easier to read format (compiled tweets).

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.
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.
This is definitely good news, as a single game shouldn’t eat up 200GB of a harddisk.
