Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is the biggest game on PC with a file size that now takes up 227 GB.
There’s a lot of big games out there. Destiny 2 and Red Dead Redemption 2 both clock in at over 150 GB. Skyrim and GTA V can also break the 100 GB mark if you download a bunch of mods. But none of these games have anything on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which just recently got a patch that pushed it over 200 GB on PC.
Thanks to last week’s patch, Modern Warfare is now a staggering 227 GB. That’s bigger than any other standard PC game ever made.
It’s also a problem. Many players are complaining that Modern Warfare’s file size has gotten completely out of control and is preventing them from installing other games. Memes making fun of Modern Warfare’s install size have existed for some time now, but it’s gotten to the point where some are joking that the next patch will have to be released along with a 250 GB SSD just so PC players can install it.
One Reddit comment suspects that Infinity Ward is being paid off by the various game streaming providers to keep inflating Modern Warfare‘s install size just so that players are forced to get their game on Stadia or xCloud.
