The Call of Duty franchise is known for its huge file sizes, but it looks like your disk space is safe with Call of Duty: Vanguard. The full game is at 61 GB at launch, while those who only want to play at minimum will only need 36 GB at launch for Zombies and Multiplayer. Note that it says “at launch,” which means it could change as updates come in.

Activision also provided a list for Competitive and Ultra 4K for players who wish to run the game in its maximum settings.
