COD Modern Warfare Update Lets PC Players Shrink Its Massive File Size

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare players on PC will finally get some control over the game’s ballooning file size, as its recent update will let them uninstall game modes they don’t use. Modern Warfare players on console have had access to this space-saving feature for a while now, giving them the ability to uninstall the game’s campaign, multiplayer, and Spec Ops modes separately.

Developer Infinity Ward has been extraordinarily active with updates throughout Modern Warfare’s lifetime. It is added lots of new content to keep players involved, but that also means it is required players to download a lot of extra data. Due to that, Modern Warfare’s install size has increased consistently since its launch, getting to the point where it’s even outgrown some players’ hard drive. With all modes involved, Modern Warfare is one of the most massive video games out there, not including those that have expanded through additional DLC.

Infinity Ward is giving PC players a recent option to maintain the ever-growing game, just weeks before its successor, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, is set to come. Modern Warfare’s recent update is scheduled to release on Wednesday, October 13. While Infinity Ward still has not launched the official patch notes, one feature it’s adding has already been disclosed. Paul Haile, Modern Warfare’s production director, revealed on Twitter today that the game will add the capacity to uninstall particular modes on PC. 

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s upcoming match must help PC players reclaim some space on their hard drives. It will set a trend that will continue with the release of its sequel. Between the two most current Call of Duty campaign games and Warzone, anyone wishing to keep up with all sides of the franchise will be sacrificing a much storage space to do so. The Xbox Series S has produced a point of enabling developers to deliver smaller assets for its lower resolution output. Both Sony and Microsoft say their next-gen comforts will deleting unused parts of games at least a possibility. Although, that utility remains up to individual developers for PC players. 

Many players out there were willing to sacrifice the hard drive space to keep playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, but even the biggest fans will likely be glad to have more control over what they keep installed. A year after release, most multiplayer players likely don’t have much use for the game’s campaign anymore and could probably use that space for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War soon.
