The Division 2's First Update Will Be 50GB on PC and Xbox, Bigger on PS4

You're going to need to clear some hard drive space for the first update to Tom Clancy's The Division 2, as you're looking at a 50GB minimum. Ubisoft released details today about the first update to the game, which will include bug fixes and improvements to the game. Even if you purchased a physical copy, the update will be massive for PC and Xbox One owners. But if you're a PS4 owner, you're looking at nearly double that.

Xbox One and PC:

– If you purchased a physical copy of the game, begin by installing the game. You will then be prompted to download and install Title Update 1; expect a 48-52 GB download, depending on your region and preferred language. Whether you installed the game from a disc or bought it digitally, the final HDD install size, including the patch, will be 48-52 GB.
PS4:
 If you purchased a physical copy of the game, begin installing from the disc. Provided you are online, your console will simultaneously download Title Update 1 while you install it. Expect a 88-92 GB download, depending on your region and preferred language. Whether installed from a disc or downloaded digitally, the final HDD install size will be between 88-92 GB.

While an update that size isn't unheard of, it's certainly an annoyance to anyone who doesn't have an external drive or 1TB of memory to spare on whatever games come their way. Especially for PS4 owners who, for some odd reason, have to take on double the storage. Hopefully, there will be an update down the road that will shrink the size of The Division 2 and keep the content fixed, because that's the kind of game storage people immediately uninstall after they've beat it or played it as much as they feel like until a new one comes.
