Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 isn't 309GB

… well not typically

Activision has clarified that Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 isn't 309GB after all – or at least, you can download the guts of it for less.

Alarm bells rang this week when the Xbox store page for the game stated that Call of Duty: Black Ops 6's installation size is a rather hefty 309.85 GB. This caused quite a stir, as it appeared to be excessive.

The Call of Duty team has now issued a more detailed correction. Writing on social media platform X, Activision stated the file size currently listed for Black Ops 6 "does not represent the download size or disk footprint" for its forthcoming Call of Duty game.

"The sizes as shown include the complete installations of Modern Warfare 2, Modern Warfare 3, Warzone, and all relevant content packs, including all localised languages combined, which is not indicative of a typical player installation experience," it explained, before adding: "Players will be able to download Black Ops 6 at launch without downloading any other Call of Duty titles or all of the language packs."

The studio did not reveal Black Ops 6's file size, however. Instead, it said it would share more details closer to the game's release this autumn.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 was officially named last month after newspaper adverts spotted by fans indicated its title.

Soon after, Microsoft confirmed to Eurogamer that Black Ops 6 will be accessible across Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, PC Game Pass, and Xbox Game Pass for Console members upon its debut.
