Warzone 2.0 will have a massive download size of around 115GB, according to a recent tweet from dataminer Aggiorlamenti Lumia on Twitter (via Insider Gaming’s Tom Henderson). This shouldn’t be too surprising for anyone who has installed the original Warzone at any point in time after its launch. On consoles, Warzone was close to 100GB. And this was on top of the files size for Modern Warfare (2019).
On PC though, the original Warzone took up about 175GB of space. Which means if you’re playing Warzone 2.0 on PC, be prepared for an even heftier download size. While the exact file size on PC isn’t known yet, the 115GB download was datamined from Xbox information. Suggesting that PlayStation players can probably expect a similar download size.
That leaves us with PC. And judging from the PC download of the original Warzone, it’s likely to be closer to that mark. Either way, the game will be big. So you may want to start clearing out some space if you’re planning to play. Assuming you need to make room of course.

The Warzone 2.0 download size will be on top of Modern Warfare II
As if it needs to be said, but Warzone 2.0’s big, big game file size will be on top of what you already have installed for Modern Warfare II. Unfortunately, there’s no way around using up all that space. Short of only installing one game or the other, or not playing them at all.
It’s also an issue that’s been around for quite some time in video games. The more impressive they get visually, the larger the download sizes have become. Of course, it doesn’t help the situation when you have large sprawling maps like the upcoming Al Mazrah. Such is the trade-off for having games with massive maps and better graphics.
Warzone 2.0 is set to launch officially on November 16 alongside season 1 and the season 1 battle pass. Pre-load for the game will start on November 14.
