By comparison, the game is only a little more demanding than Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's minimum system requirements, which requires a slightly older GPU.

Treyarch told GameSpot that it's putting a greater emphasis on good PC performance and stability this time around, which is why it's confident in revealing the minimum system requirements earlier in the development cycle.
