Call of Duty Vanguard: File Size Will Be "Significantly Below" Other Releases

With just a few days until the worldwide launch of Call of Duty: Vanguard, Activision and Sledgehammer Games continue to unveil a wealth of new information surrounding various features of the next game entering the first-person shooter franchise. Alongside new intel on the playable Operators, the publisher has revealed some interesting information surrounding Vanguard's file size.

After the Season 6 update was released for Black Ops Cold War, the game took up over 250 GB of hard drive space, much to the annoyance of players that often had to delete other games in order to play. Thankfully, it doesn't look like that will be the case for Vanguard.

In a Tweet, Activision revealed that Vanguard will utilise new on-demand texture streaming technology, meaning many textures will no longer be stored on the hard drive of a console or PC. With fewer textures on a hard drive, the publisher claims that the technology will save between "30-50%" on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC versions of the game.
