Halo 5 Guardians recently passed gold certification ahead of the October 27th release date. However, it seems some copies have already leaked prior to the official launch date, which could result in spoilers being splattered all over social media and various forums. Additionally, a picture has emerged from NeoGAF showing the final retail copy which features a Teen rating. Without knowing for sure, it looks like the picture has been taken from a retailer’s warehouse given the large cardboard box. However, this is still pure speculation.
Whatever the case, we now know that the game will require up to 60GB of storage to install. This is an absolute huge amount of data given the Xbox One’s default 500GB configuration. Although it’s not a surprising revelation considering the file sizes of other exclusive titles. I am surprised to see that Halo 5’s install is almost larger than the Master Chief Collection’s 65GB figure. Clearly, the key terminology is “up to” but it’s looking like a very large install size. Please remember that Xbox One games have a mandatory install which can take a while to complete. Obviously, Microsoft needs to make a 1TB model the new standard and start to the phase out the 500GB version.
Are you looking forward to Halo 5?
Thank you NeoGAF for providing us with this information.
