Recent times have seen a rising trend of video games that require a huge amount of storage space. Some franchises notorious for the same include names like Call of Duty and Cyberpunk 2077, which require massive amounts of storage each.
Fans of Starfield worry that the game is going to suffer from the same fate, with a listing of 125 gigabytes as the minimum storage requirement on Steam, this game is officially one of the biggest games in terms of storage, competing with others like Microsoft Flight Simulator and Destiny 2.
Starfield Storage Space On Xbox
Starfield is a fairly big game, which is something obvious considering it is based on outer space as a whole, which is really limitless. This is something that causes us to wonder if it will make the Xbox be due for an upgrade soon, as Starfield’s release in September will be soon followed by Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III release in
November this year.
Starfield was also just recently under fire for having Solid State Drives as a minimum requirement to play the game, something which is new to the industry. This has caused worry amongst fans who still prefer their old optical drives instead due to cost efficiency and other factors. However, this has since been debunked after a user on Reddit pointed out how it will still run on Hard Disks, but the performance will be nowhere near that of an SSD.
How Much Will Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III Weigh?
The Call Of Duty franchise is notoriously known for its demanding requirements owed to its graphic details and the realism it delivers to the players. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, an instalment for the franchise that came out in 2020 had around 175 gigabytes of storage requirements, which is nearly twice the size of an average game.

But that is not all, the recent release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in 2022 is even larger, requiring 225GB of storage space, which is an insane amount of storage, amounting to nearly a quarter of the storage of the Xbox Series X and almost half of what is available in the Xbox Series S console.
All of this has made us come to the conclusion that the upcoming Call Of Duty game in November just might cross the 250GB mark, or even more, officially making a majority of Xbox series players due for a storage upgrade as soon as it comes out assuming everybody is already going to be playing Starfield at the time.
