Halo: The Master Chief Collection Will Require 20GB Day One Patch


I am one of many Xbox gamers awaiting Halo: The Master Chief Collection to drop but one thing I didn’t consider is how much space my Xbox One will require. According to developer 343 industries the collection will require an estimated 20GB day one patch download.

The patch itself is required to unlock multiplayer as well as other features. I can’t say I am surprised by this news as we are looking at a 4-in1 title after all. Dan Ayoub, Halo External Development’s studio head, wrote in a blog post that “Our philosophy has been to give Halo fans the best possible experience and not compromise the quality or features of the collection,” and “The result is that Halo: The Master Chief Collection¬†will take up almost all of the usable space of a single Blu-ray (45 GB).”

He also had some news that disappointed me personally and I know some other Halo fans will be annoyed that Sparton Ops from Halo 4 will not be available until December.

How do you feel about the news? Let us know.
