Call of Duty: Warzone dev says more maps aren’t possible because install sizes are “fucking crazy”.

Call of Duty Warzone cannot have multiple main maps available at the same time due to install sizes being too large.

In an interview with streamer TeeP spotted by PC Gamer, Call of Duty’s head of live operations Josh Bridge said he and the team want to add more maps, but the install sizes are “fucking crazy.”

Warzone’s original map, Verdansk, was replaced by Caldera in December 2021, and TeeP questioned if a map rotation option similar to that in Apex Legends would ever come into play.

Bridge said, “We want this. We all want this, [but] There is a technical issue: the install and reinstall sizes are fucking crazy.”

Warzone currently requires more than 120 gigabytes of storage space on the PlayStation 5 and a similar amount on other consoles, while the PC install takes around 80GB.

The huge install size turns off gamers, Bridge said, adding that each new update (which takes up more storage space) loses gamers.

That’s because Warzone was built within Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, meaning its assets were intended for the usual six-on-six player matches on small maps. “Verdansk was never written with the idea that 180 weapons would be added,” Bridge said.

Last week there were big changes to the battle royale in Season Two’s Reloaded update, giving Warzone’s Rebirth Island its biggest update since launch.
