Well, at least at launch.

If you have installed and played a Call of Duty title released in the past few years, you probably noticed that your PC or console has suddenly run out of room for, well, most anything else. That's because the install sizes for the past few Call of Duty titles have been absolutely massive.

Let's not forget that there was a time where Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was no longer able to fit on a 250GB drive. Thankfully, that install size has come down a fair bit over the past couple of years, including a rather substantial decrease for Warzone that happened just this past March.

Fortunately, it looks like Call of Duty: Vanguard may buck this trend of chunky install sizes. The Call of Duty Twitter sent out a little notice today saying that Vanguard's install size "at launch will be significantly below previous #CallofDuty releases."

They specify that this is expected to save anywhere from 30% to 50% on needed storage capacity. The catch here is that this smaller size will only be for those on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Those still on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms will still need a lot of extra free space before installing.

It's important to note that they also included the words "at launch" with this announcement. As we all know, the Call of Duty games tend to get a little bloated with extra content *coughmicrotransactionscough* as the months go by. Expect that size to balloon up significantly as new content is added in the year following Vanguard's release. It's also not clear if this includes multiplayer and Warzone or if they're just talking about the Vanguard single player campaign.

Today's reveal also did not include any other official numbers outside of that percentage range.
