Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Modern Warfare and Warzone may soon be too much for PlayStation 4's lowly 500GB drive, which would technically make it an incomplete experience on Sony's console.

Activision, Treyarch and Infinity Ward's have been pushing the installation size with new content to the point of breaking, although you'd be hard-pressed to find a Call of Duty player who'd say no to shiny new modes, playlists, guns and whatnot. 

Now, however, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Modern Warfare and Warzone installations threaten to outgrow the capabilities of Sony's PlayStation 4 500GB, which actually may be a bigger issue than it seems at first glance.

The culprit is naturally Season 2 of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, whose demands occasionally exceeded what it said on the label. This ultimately prompted the publisher to warn players that 500GB drives may not be enough soon.

"Should you have both games installed and have kept up to date with updates, you may need to delete some unused game content to have a successful download and install of the Warzone patch tonight", they said. 

Unfortunately, not only are PS4s with 500GB drives among the most commonly found models, Sony's last-gen console has been one of Activision's most reliable moneymakers. It will take a while more before it's being declared obsolete, mind you, but the signs are already there.

Of course, the scenario we're talking about involves full installations with no deactivation of in-game features to save precious space, but we're still arriving at a point where completing the Call of Duty trilogy requires having a dedicated PlayStation 4. Which we're sure Activision wouldn't mind in the slightest.
