The first game of the Call of Duty franchise which was released in 2003 portrayed the World Wars.


The first few titles represented the world war themes, i.e., World War I and World War II, but it gradually transitioned into the modern world military problems over time. It represented the warfare disputes between the nations taking place in the recent past. Developed by a joint initiative of Infinity Ward, Treyarch, and Sledgehammer Games, the franchise started its most successful sub-series, i.e., The Modern Warfare series from 2007 to 2011, which mainly portrayed the US’s dispute with the Middle-East and Russia.

Call of Duty – Modern Warfare 3 which was released back in 2011 is one of the superhit games of the Modern Warfare Series.


But let’s skip to the details related to the game. Since the advent of the Modern Warfare series, the franchise has rejuvenated itself concerning the graphics, gameplay, sound effects, storyline, and other elements necessary for modern-day gaming. 

Compared to its predecessors who had mediocre storylines, low graphic quality, less space consumption, and monotonous style of gameplay, the Modern Warfare series did things precisely the opposite way. It includes intense but short storylines, high graphic quality with fabulous motion graphic effects, high space consumption in storage devices, and a variety of gameplay styles.

For the ‘Cold War’ title, word around is that it will take up a gargantuan amount of memory space even more than the Modern Warfare reboot version, released in 2019. The industry is now switching over to high-resolution gaming, and hence the production of games is happening based on 4K resolution and 8K resolution.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019 version) with Warzone installed takes up a total space of approximately 231 GB in HDD or SSD. Based on the PC specifications, the ‘Cold War’ title will take about 250 GB of memory space. Now that’s only for 4K resolution PCs. If you do not wish to go for 4K, then with just a maximum refresh rate monitor, the space that the game will consume is about 175 GB of HDD or SSD. Now that’s just for the start of the game. Treyarch will be automatically notifying you to clear up space up to a threshold for the game to run smoothly and lag-free. You can check out the trailer for the game here:
