The preload size number varies between platforms, but according to a recent leak, the preload size was estimated to be around 40GBs in size for PlayStation Five users.
On the other hand, users who downloaded the Xbox One version reported the download size to be somewhere around 27GBs. For Xbox Series X/S, the file size was around 50GBs.
In short, there’s no way to be sure what the exact file size will be for all platforms. However, we imagine it won’t vary all that much between each platform. It’s also worth noting that the current numbers are without the day one patch.
Because of this, we imagine the total size will increase when the patch is released. Along with that, the information that’s currently floating around about the pre-load size is from a leak, so take the information with a grain of salt.
