God of War: Ragnarok was always going to be bigger than the 2018 reboot. However, most players probably didn't expect it to be so in a literal sense.
According to a recent report, God of War: Ragnarok will take up 90.6GB of space on the PlayStation 4. In comparison, 2018's God of War was around 45GB. This means that the sequel will be at least double its predecessor's size. PlayStation Game Size then clarified that the leaked file sizes can differ per region.
However, before you start worrying, keep in mind that this is the PS4 file size of Ragnarok. It should consume much less storage space on the PS5 thanks to its file compression technology. Although it's worth noting that Horizon: Forbidden West's PS5 version actually ended up being noticeably larger (there's a 10GB difference, give or take) than its PS4 counterpart. Also, similar to Ragnarok, Forbidden West doubled the file size of Horizon: Zero Dawn.

100GB sounds about right for Ragnarok after seeing the file sizes of exclusive titles such as Gran Turismo 7 and Forbidden West. It appears that the PS5's compression technology can only do so much for exclusives that are also available on the PS4.
On the other hand, the largest PS5 exclusive game, Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade, only clocks in at 81.338 GB. The rest, such as Demon's Souls (66GB), Returnal (56.15GB), Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart (33GB), and Deathloop (29.53GB), are all much smaller.
For what it's worth, everything we've seen so far about Ragnarok, including the latest trailer, suggests that it more than deserves the file size.
Gigabytes aside, the most important thing with Ragnarok is its quality. After Elden Ring set such a high bar earlier this year, Santa Monica Studio has a steep climb ahead. FromSoftware's new best-selling game has already won a GOTY award. If Ragnarok isn't even close to being a perfect game, Elden Ring will run away with the trophy at The Game Awards in December.
We'll likely find out more details about God of War: Ragnarok as we inch closer to its launch on November 9.
