Photos of the box for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s Legacy Edition (which comes packaged with Modern Warfare Remastered) have been leaked and seemingly reveal that having both games installed on your system will take up a massive 130GB of hard drive space.
The figures are courtesy of Call of Duty fansite Charlie Intel, which managed to get its hands on the leaked photos from a buyer who pre-ordered the game via French retailer Micromania. One of the perks of pre-ordering the Infinite Warfare Legacy Edition (or any other edition which comes with Modern Warfare Remastered), is the 30 day Early Access Campaign for Modern Warfare Remastered (which began today).
It appears Micromania is using a rather unorthodox system where it has pre-order customers come in and gives them an empty Infinite Warfare game case containing a download code for Modern Warfare Remastered. Then, those same customers will have to take their empty cases back to Micromania on November 4th to get their Infinite Warfare discs.
Early Access players have reported that Modern Warfare Remastered requires about 40GB of hard drive space, which would mean that Infinite Warfare will require another 90GB if the 130GB requirement is accurate. 90GB may sound like a lot, but it’s actually not that surprising considering the most recent Call of Duty game, Treyarch’s Black Ops 3, was about 60GB on PC when it first launched (it was only about 40GB on consoles). That figure increased with every subsequent DLC expansion released.
We’ll have to wait until Infinite Warfare is released on November 4th to see if the 130GB install minimum is indeed accurate. In the meantime, you may want to start cleaning out your hard drive just in case.
