Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War player switchondem recently shared a screenshot of the issue on Reddit. The player shows how the latest?Call of Duty is now a massive 219.8 GB on PS5, taking up nearly a third of the console’s default storage space. For comparison, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and It Takes Two seen alongside the game are only around 40 GB each.
As a partial solution to this, fans can uninstall individual aspects of the game to try and reduce its file size. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies and the main campaign can be uninstalled if the player only wants to access its online multiplayer. Still, uninstalling the campaign only brings the number down to 154 GB, with the file still being larger than other titles.

With many fans installing both Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Call of Duty: Warzone, space becomes an even larger issue as fans are often left with little room for anything else. Players are awaiting a solution to this problem, and many hope for file compression in the future.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s file size is expected to continue to grow as new content is added. While some fans do not understand the need for this large file size, many guess the bloated game comes from repetitive assets. At this point, some on Reddit suggest they are willing to sacrifice load times in exchange for a less massive game file.
