While many gamers await the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III, some are waiting for its release on Xbox Game Pass or are simply not interested, but could very well have the game installed on their console without knowing it.
Having not pre-ordered Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III, many players are surprised to discover that the “Campaign” and “Multiplayer” modules were installed without having requested them. The latter occupy 24.1 GB and 19.3 GB respectively on the Xbox Series X|S SSD.
You may also be affected if you have the “Call of Duty” hub installed on your console. Small clarification, this seems to happen to those who have Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, and it certainly has to do with this unsolicited installation. We don’t know if Call of Duty: Warzone players have experienced the same installations, don’t hesitate to let us know in the comments if you’ve been affected too.
Although this practice is very intrusive and undesirable, it is obviously possible to delete these two files with just a few clicks.
- Go to “My games and apps”
- Go to “Call of Duty” and select the menu (start)
- Choose “Manage game and add-ons”
- Choose “Call of Duty”
- Uncheck “MWIII: Campaign” and “MWIII: Multiplayer”
- Choose “Save changes”
- The game will update for a few seconds and delete the files in question
Since this year, Activision has made some changes to the way its Call of Duty license is offered to players. Thus, the name of the game no longer appears clearly in the list of games we own, in favor of a simple “Call of Duty”.
Today it is “Call of Duty” that we launched in the list of games installed on the Xbox, and it is only in the main menu that we choose the experience to participate in, be it Modern Warfare 2, Modern Warfare 3 or Warzone. A paradigm shift that allows Activision to centralize everything, but also promote all its titles in the blink of an eye.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III will be available on November 10 on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC.
