The Call of Duty franchise has recently been under a lot of fire due to their large install sizes, resulting in the games taking up over 200GB on hard drives or SSDs. But it seems like those days will be behind us soon, as Activision recently revealed a new streaming tech will help cut storage sizes by up to 50%.
It’s not exactly clear how the technology will work in Call of Duty: Vanguard exactly, but the “new on-demand texture streaming tech” is “expected to save up to 30%-50%+ on next-gen console and PC hard drive disk space”. That could be quite significant, especially for console users who find most of their storage space taken up by Black Ops Cold War and Warzone already.
Of course, we don’t know the official system requirements for COD Vanguard just yet, so really it could still be up in the hundreds of gigabytes when it launches. But either way the news is definitely welcomed, and it would be interesting to hear exactly how this technology works at some point.
