    Call of Duty Vanguard Small Install Size: Here’s the Reason

Call of Duty Vanguard release date is set for November 5, 2021. Ahead of the official launch, the game makers have unveiled some great news for gamers. The upcoming title will be coming with a much lower install size than previously released games in the CoD franchise.

The official Call of Duty account on Twitter revealed this piece of information and definitely brings relief to players looking forward to play Call of Duty Vanguard. One of the biggest problems with Call of Duty titles is their staggering install size.

When Activision released their Call of Duty Modern Warfare in 2019, the game came with a file size of whopping 175GB. Then, we got Call of Duty Warzone which launched at over 100GB. Meanwhile, Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War reached 200GB on consoles. Now, knowing that Vanguard will come with a significantly smaller install size is indeed a huge relief.

Call of Duty Vanguard exact install size is under wraps. However, the company teasing it to be “significantly below” could definitely mean something. We can expect to see an around 80GB install size for the upcoming game. However, this is just an estimate. Moreover, the console install sizes for the game have already been revealed. These are as follows:

  • Xbox One: 56.6GB
  • Xbox Series X/S: 61GB
  • PS4: 93.12GB (54.65GB download)
  • PS5: 89.84GB (64.13GB download)

The primary reason behind this has also been unveiled by Call of Duty Vanguard makers. According to them, this low install size has been possible because of the new on-demand texture streaming tech that the game uses. This saves up to 30% to 50% storage on PC and next-gen consoles.

Previously, players were getting worried about the Call of Duty Vanguard install size to be way too massive, going by the trailer and everything. Sledgehammer’s CoD Vanguard Open Beta gave a good insight into what we could expect to see upon launch. However, the problem with hackers and cheaters is yet to be solved. Although Activision used a new anti-cheat system called Ricochet, hackers bypassed it rather quickly.
