It’s common knowledge that Activision’s latest Call of Duty games take up swaths of storage, but it seems like they may extend beyond the capacity of a base PS4 as they receive more updates. Without compression, external storage may become the only way to have the full Call of Duty package on a console for some players.The blog notes that players can click R3 in the Black Ops Cold War main menu to uninstall “content that you may not have played in a while,” such as Campaign or Zombies, for example. The same can be achieved in Modern Warfare or Warzone by heading to the ‘General’ tab in the options menu and then clicking on the ‘Installed Games’ option. Of course, you don’t need to download the Warzone Season 2 update if you only plan on playing Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War.
This news comes before the launch of Season 2, which brings with it a new Zombies mode called Outbreak, new operators, weapons and maps. Zombies appear to be heading to Warzone as well, if recent leaks are to be believed.
In October 2020, Epic Games introduced a similarly sized Fortnite patch to reduce its storage space by 60GB. At this point, hopefully, Activision is considering similar measures, as this certainly won’t be the final update for Call of Duty.
