COD: Infinite Warfare, Modern Warfare Remastered need 130GB of free space

Last week, a tidbit of info surfaced suggesting gamers will need 130GB of free hard drive space to install Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. Some, understandably, have balked at the figure, hoping it is incorrect. Put simply, it's not. At least not according to a new FAQ page Activision has published for the two games, which says the 130GB requirement is a high-end estimate, one that covers future map releases and game updates as well as the games themselves.

If you haven't upgraded your Xbox One or PlayStation 4 console hard drives, this requirement is probably pretty burdensome, though not impossible to meet. You may have to uninstall a couple of games to free up the space, but if you're a COD fan, it may be worth. More likely, though, it'd be better to upgrade your hard drive before the games launch, ensuring you have enough room for everything you want.

You won't need all of that 130GB of space on the day of release, obviously, so don't fret if you don't have quite enough room initially. According to Activision, this generous space estimate is to ensure there's enough room for the day one updates, as well as the maps that will be released for Modern Warfare Remastered before December 31.

How do you get the games? By ordering either the Digital Deluxe, Legacy, or Legacy Pro version of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. This will include a copy of Modern Warfare Remastered; there's no way to get the latter title without ordering "Infinite Warfare." Modern Warfare Remastered will be available for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

You can preorder Infinite Warfare now for $59.99 (Standard), $79.99 (Legacy Edition), or $119.99 (Legacy Pro).
