To Combat Massive PC File Size, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Is Adding New Uninstall Options
You'll soon be able to uninstall specific game modes to decrease the game's file size on PC.
Infinity Ward is rolling out a new update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare that will give PC players another way to decrease the game's file size, which is important given how massive the game has become.
Production director Paul Haile said on Twitter that the October 13 update for Modern Warfare on PC will allow players to uninstall specific modes to free up space. Players on PC (and console, too) could already uninstall the campaign to free up space, and this goes one step further.

Modern Warfare's PC file size is north of 200 GB, so it's a welcome feature to be able to uninstall modes that you currently aren't playing much, but it's not an ideal situation regardless.
Modern Warfare's file size is larger than previous Call of Duty games due in part to how the game has "seasons" of new content, which introduce new maps and more. Infinity Ward is trying to find a middle ground between giving players more content to enjoy and keeping the file size reasonable.
In other Call of Duty news, the next open beta for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is coming up this weekend, and it will feature cross-play between PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
