The file size of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a sign of things to come, as games will require a lot more space as they become technically demanding. The PlayStation 5 is preparing for this size upgrade by using 100GB discs for its games, while the Xbox Scarlett is confirmed to still support optical discs, though the size is currently unknown. The move towards larger file sizes is more worrying for people who prefer digital games, as the bigger file sizes mean that they will have fewer games available at once, unless they are willing to upgrade.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be released for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on October 25, 2019.
