Call of Duty patch brings 'biggest download day on record'

Virgin Media says it recorded the "Biggest download day on record" on the same day as the latest Call of Duty update. Call of Duty: Warzone is known in the industry for its huge download sizes, and the update in question clocked in at up to 26.5 GB for some users. Virgin says downloads are up in the current lockdown compared with the first in 2020, with the average user downloading an extra 3.1GB a day. In November, the launch of new Xbox consoles led to a previous record being set by several internet providers as gamers downloaded the required data for the shift to next-generation gaming. PlayStation 4 owners have even been advised that they may need to delete some of the game's own data packs in order to download new updates and have them fit on the console's 500GB hard drive.
