As per a recent post on the official Call of Duty Twitter feed, Call of Duty Vanguard will have a much smaller and reasonable install size at launch when compared to older CoD titles. You can check out the tweet below.

The tweet reads, “Vanguard’s install size at launch will be significantly below previous Call of Duty releases. New on-demand texture streaming tech expected to save up to 30%-50%+ on next-gen console and PC hard drive disk space.” Activision attributes the smaller install size of Vanguard due to “on-demand texture streaming tech.”

While the developers didn’t dive into any details about the new technology or didn’t give any installation size numbers, CoD players will be comforted to hear the news nonetheless.

The recent Call of Duty titles has been taking up more than 100 GB of hard disk space, which as per new generation standards, is also a bit too much. Players usually have to delete or back up some game files to make space for these hefty games. But it looks like Call of Duty Vanguard might provide players some relief.

Activision is yet to provide details regarding the preload dates and a few other necessary things before players can dive into the world of Vanguard. What do you think about the new game size information? Let us know in the comments.
