'File size is causing user churn,' said game distributor TeeP , Josh, vice president of design at Activision , the distributor of Call of Duty: Warzone.・ During an interview with Mr. Bridge.

Call of Duty: Warzone doesn't use map rotation, so you can't play Verdansk on the old map and Caldera on the new map at the same time. So when TeeP asked in an interview, 'What do you think of map rotation?', Bush said, 'We are all anxious for map rotation.' However, if you make it possible to play two maps, it will be necessary to reinstall the game itself, which will put a heavy burden on the user.

The bloated game file size is often seen as a problem, and the official website system says that the file size of the PC version of ' Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War ' will require 175GB for both multiplayer and singleplayer. It is written in the requirements. In addition, the system requirements for the PC version of ' Call of Duty: Modern Warfare ,' in which Call of Duty: Warzone was integrated as a battle royale mode, clearly state that the required file size is 175GB . And the required file size of Call of Duty: Warzone, which was the center of this topic, is 91.78GB for Xbox One / Xbox Series X / S and 175GB for PC version.

When distributing the Call of Duty: Warzone patch in March 2021, Activision said, 'This patch weighs over 50GB, but thanks to this patch we can reduce the size of future patches, so the total file size is 10 It can be reduced by ~ 15GB, and depending on the platform, 30 ~ 35GB. ' Then, if the patch size after this was actually reduced, the patch size distributed in March 2022 was compact at about 11 GB, but the patch size on December 7, 2021 when the new map was introduced was a console. The version also had a capacity of 41-45GB.

In other words, although Activision said that 'future patches can be reduced', Mr. Bush points out that the patch including the new map actually reaches a size of less than 50 GB.

About this, Mr. Bush said, 'Every time I do this, we will lose the player.' 'Users will not want to re-download games of that file size.' 'Playing games on PS4, for example. Users will not be able to have games other than Call of Duty: Warzone installed, 'he said, pointing out that the oversized file size of Call of Duty: Warzone is hampering users.

Mr. Bridge is very straightforward about the Call of Duty: Warzone file size issue and is 'focusing on how to organize the map at the technical level so that it can be rotated for the future.' But this is ultimately a goal to ensure freshness and a diverse experience. '
