Since launching Call of Duty: Warzone as a bonus feature for 2019's Modern Warfare before releasing it as a standalone title, Activision has always worried about the game's installation size.

Even if Call of Duty games historically have large install sizes, Call of Duty: Warzone is still pretty big at nearly 100GB, which is a problem when you're a free-to-play game.

Activision is well aware of this issue and it's one of the reasons why Warzone doesn't have as many maps as fans would like.

According to the live operations lead at Raven Software, John Bridge, Warzone won't be getting any maps soon.

Bridge explained that the game's install sizes is one of the reasons why the studio has had to get creative with the game's map rotations.

He added that the developers' way of dealing with map fatigue was to revamp Rebirth Island because a huge chunk of the player base are on last-gen consoles.

TLDR; Warzone's current file size is the best  that Raven can do at the moment.

Hopefully, Activision can address this issue with the release of Warzone 2.

Warzone 2 is currently scheduled to launch sometime in 2023.
