Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 3 File Size

The Season 3 file size is much smaller than the Season 2 file size was, but it's still a substantial download. Here's how much storage you should expect to have freed up before you start updating for Season 3:

  • PS4 - 11.7 GB
  • Xbox One - 13.6 GB
  • PC - 16 GB

Prior to launch, the official Call of Duty account on Twitter posted a teaser image featuring three figures enveloped in red smoke, including Alex from the Modern Warfare campaign, who now has a prosthetic leg. Ghost, who appears in the background, joined the roster as a special battle pass unlockable in Season 2 as well, and his reveal trailer helped lay the groundwork for the Warzone mode.

In the midst of Modern Warfare Season 3, Activision also released Modern Warfare 2 Remastered on PS4, with PC and Xbox One versions to come in late April. It's a standalone game, not part of the Modern Warfare package, and it doesn't include multiplayer, so as to not split the player base in Modern Warfare. But the campaign itself has been given a visual rework, even if parts of it don't hold up.
