Update: Similar to how Black Ops 4’s demand of 100GB was all about having enough space to unpack data, a fresh claim has popped up that Red Dead Redemption 2 will only take up 50GB and 3GB for a day one patch, disputing the 105GB install size originally reported.
It’s a technical detail that we’ll be looking to take into account better going forward.
Rockstar’s games a huge, Grand Theft Auto V filled a blu-ray and took forever to install and it looks like Red Dead Redemption 2 is going to be even bigger.
Sony recently announced a Red Dead 2 PlayStation 4 Pro bundle and hidden away in the small print on the back of the box is a note explaining the game will “require a minimum storage space of 105GB.” That’s over a fifth of the space on a standard PlayStation 4, and I would expect that, with updates, the game will take up even more space.
The box also reveals that PlayStation 4 players will be getting extra content for the game thirty days before rival platforms, and that the online component for the game will support up to 32 players.
