Blimey, it's actually almost here. Did Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 creep up on anyone else, or is it just us?Warzone 2.0 is right around the corner, and it seems as though fans aren't sure what to do with themselves. 

We're excited by a new Warzone experience by Call of Duty veterans Infinity Ward - with the potential to be free of the bugs and glitches that made the first game almost unplayable in some places. But, what if it's bad, what if it's worse than the first, what if the two games have nothing in common? There's at least one thing that we can guarantee is similar to the first game - and that's a whopping file size.

Warzone 2.0 Costs A Stupid Amount Of Storage

We've grown used to Call of Duty having absolutely no talent in compressing its games, but it's once again pushed the boat out far enough to presume that players only want the games on their hard drives. And, that all three of them should be Call of Duty games.

Leaked information from Aggiornamenti Lumia indicates that the file size of the free-to-play game will be a punishing 115.62 GB when it releases on November 16. Worse than this, that's just for the launch file. Jesus wept.

The tweet lists the game date as November 14, but this is just the presumed date that players can pre-load the battle royale title. They're going to need the two-day notice, as fans will have one hell of a wait to sit through the download. 

Call Of Duty's Storage Compression Is A Massive Problem

This isn't the first time that storage space has been a problem for the franchise, as ever since the game stepped into its modern era with 2019's Modern Warfare and the launch of Warzone, the games have been obnoxiously wide in terms of storage space, and the game's developers haven't been held enough to account to make a change.

Players have been frustrated about the Call of Duty size issues for years, and yet, nothing seems to change. At this stage, maybe it's just wishful thinking to presume that anything will be different. Remember when you could fit a game onto a floppy disc? We don't either, but you get the point.
