Call of Duty writer Activision is aware of. It’s seen all the complaints on social media in regards to the collection’ absurd exhausting drive footprint, and surprisingly it’s put out a Twitter submit acknowledging it. The franchise’s official account notes that “Call of Duty: Vanguard’s set up dimension at launch will likely be considerably under earlier Name of Responsibility releases”.
It provides: “New on-demand texture streaming tech [is] anticipated to avoid wasting as much as 30 per cent to 50 per cent plus on next-gen console and PC exhausting drive disk area.”
What’s unclear is whether or not this can apply to the PS4 as effectively. It does begin out the Tweet by stating that there’s “excellent news for exhausting drives all over the place”, so presumably even last-gen consoles will profit from a significantly smaller file dimension – it’s simply the advantages will prolong ever additional on Sony’s new system, which has been a consistent trend of late.
One factor value mentioning is that this solely applies to the launch interval for now: there’s a great probability that Vanguard’s file dimension will balloon with future updates, as has been the case with earlier instalments like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
