File sizes for Xbox One games like Injustice 2 and Tekken 7 revealed

We recently reported on the file size for Destiny 2 and how it’s expected to be around 68 GB at launch. However, what about the other major games coming out in the coming weeks? A quick run through of the Xbox Store provided a lot of insight into these titles. While games like The Surge are around 5 GB on the console which use efficient compression techniques, experiences like Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 approach Destiny 2 territory. The download sizes of some upcoming games are as follows:

It’s surprising how Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 and Tekken 7 have the exact same sizes. It’s also surprising how small Injustice 2 is given the fact that Mortal Kombat X is around 40 GB on Xbox One. Developers are using uncompressed audio and high-resolution textures and these games look and sound phenomenal. Unfortunately, this is at the expense of the consumer. When you purchase a console nowadays, you either have to opt for the most expensive model with the most storage or purchase a separate external hard drive.

It’s understandable that developers want their games to be the best-looking and most advanced out there, but maybe researching new compression techniques will be beneficial going forward. Hopefully file sizes will be a priority for the gaming industry because internet speeds in the majority of the world don’t support downloading 40 GB files in a timely fashion.
