Why do I need so much storage to update COD Warzone?

The answer to this question comes in two folds. The first is that PS4 always downloads the entire game and any new updates that you install on your console.

If you already have COD Warzone installed on your PS4 and want to install the update, you should have free space totaling the game size + the size of the update.

That is, unfortunately, how the PS4 stores’ games. It creates a second copy of the game, installs the update and the new version of the game, and later deletes the older version.

What can you do to prevent this issue? Sadly, all you can do is follow the above steps to clear up space on your PS4 console. Alternatively, you can attach bigger hard drives and SSDs, or plug in a USB external hard drive to expand the storage.

To avoid facing a Warzone update not enough free space error, we recommend you clear up space on your console before you proceed to download an update.
