The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Reportedly Requires 50GB of HDD Space on PS4

PS4 owners, get ready to make some space on your harddrive. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will reportedly require 50GB if you want to play the hotly anticipated RPG.

Several European PlayStation Store’s have updated their Witcher 3 listings to include the 50GB install size. Microsoft has yet to update the Xbox Live listing, but we suspect the install size would be similar to the PS4 version. The PC, however, will only require 40GB of install space.

Sony and CD Projekt Red have yet to confirm the install size of the PS4 version, so take this with a grain of salt. However, 50GB doesn’t sound too crazy considering how large The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is. With an open-world of about 64 square kilometers, it’s gonna require plenty of space on any platform. Plus, it’s not like there haven’t been other PS4 games with huge installs. Killzone: Shadow Fall, The Last of Us Remastered, and Wolfenstein: The New Order all required at least 50GB of HDD space.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is out May 19 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Check out our preview of the game here.
