One game that's gained notoriety for its file size of late is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. With Warzone included, it now takes up 200 GB of hard drive space on console and PC, but CD Projekt Red has shot down rumors of Cyberpunk 2077 taking up a similar space in file size.
Recently, a post on Reddit alleged Cyberpunk 2077 would take up 200 GB in file size, as was seemingly indicated by Nvidia at yesterday's Ampere GPU reveal. CD Projekt global community lead Marcin Momot responded to the rumor, saying that "the game won't take up 200 GB when installed. You can expect the required HDD space to be on par with other modern titles."
Obviously it's a little hard to guess what the other "modern titles" that Momot refers to are. AAA games can vary hugely in file size, from the likes of the recent Marvel's Avengers taking up over 50 GB of hard drive space, to games like Dark Souls 3 taking up just 17 GB by comparison.
Additionally, Momot also promises that Cyberpunk 2077's system requirements are "coming soon." There's no indication right now as to Cyberpunk 2077's exact system requirements, but with just over two months to go until launch, we can probably expect to hear about the PC requirements before too long.
After a long wait, Cyberpunk 2077 launches for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on November 17, 2020. You'll be able to play the game on PS5 and Xbox Series X on the day that either console launches, but a more substantial patch later on will be introduced to take full advantage of the technical capabilities of the new consoles.
