Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's next update will allow PC gamers to save HDD/SSD space

Patch 1.28 is due to release for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare tomorrow, and it will address one of the game's largest issues on PC, the game's colossal install size.  

Currently, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is too large to store on a 250GB SSDs, taking up too much storage space for most SSD users. This aspect of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone has forced many PC gamers to abandon the title, as the game's sheer install size would otherwise force many of them to uninstall other software or purchase more PC storage. 

With Patch 1.28, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's PC version will allow gamers to uninstall specific parts of of the game, be its singleplayer campaign or parts of the game's multiplayer components. This will allow gamers to save up precious SSD/HDD space by removing unwanted sections of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. 

At this time, it is unknown how this patch will function on PC, though all will be revealed tomorrow. This has been confirmed by Infinity Ward's Paul Haile, who recently confirmed that patch 1.28 will allow PC gamers to reduce Modern Warfare's install size.

It's a shame they couldn't enable this prior to downloading the game, Give you a check list of sorts of what you want to download.Quote

Because it utilises SSDs and so on. Meaning you have to cater for every one else with extra assets.

So basically you can expect most next gen titles to do this, but hopefully they will be able to tailor the install to your rig and your choice rather than just dumping tons of data onto your PC.Quote

This is possible now, though. Click install -> modify install -> uncheck what you don't want. But I agree, this could've been a "feature" at launch. Steam has had this since Black Ops 2, I believe.


Sadly, you can't uninstall Warzone, though... Over 170GB for the trash can Quote
