Halo 5 requires up to 60 GB of hard drive space

Bigger is better?

It’s probably time to start clearing up space on your Xbox One’s hard drive.

Halo 5: Guardians may have just went gold the other day, but copies of 343 Industries’ upcoming shooter are already finding their way onto the streets. And, according to text on the back of the box, Halo 5 requires players have up to 60 GB of storage space in order to play the game.

Microsoft’s online store lists the file size at 46.19 GB, so the 60 GB figure on the package could be an estimate or be budgeting for an inevitable day-one patch. Either way, it’s a hefty chunk of data.

The Xbox One exclusive will be officially released on October 27.
