Warzone's Latest Update Saw Record Downloads On Virgin Media

According to Virgin Media, average users downloaded a whopping 20.77GB of data in 24 hours on February 25 – the day that Warzone's new season dropped.

That's 3.5GB more than the most recent record-breaking day for traffic – when Xbox Series S/X landed in November 2020.

Considering that Call of Duty fans have long complained about its huge file size, it's impressive that players continue to jump headfirst into Verdansk – even with sizeable patches. The latest update reached almost 18GB, and the game is now too big for a base, 500GB PS4.
