After reports that Red Dead Redemption 2 would weigh a massive 105 GB when it launches, quite recently, the games page on the Microsoft store confirmed that its file size at least on the Xbox One would instead be 88.57 GB. Which is still pretty hefty, to be fair, but seems measly in comparison to the previously reported figure.
Now, the games details have also been updated on its PlayStation Store page (the console version, not the website), and it too falls in that same ballpark, as you may have expected, at 89.2 GB. The 105 GB number reported earlier might still come into play later on- perhaps it takes into account 4K textures (after all, the figure was first spotted on the games PS4 Pro bundle), while its also possible that the larger number also includes Red Dead Online, which doesnt actually launch till November.
Or maybe theres going to be a huge day one patch. Either way, when Red Dead Redemption 2 launches, itl weigh 88.57 GB on the Xbox One, and 89.2 GB on the PS4. We also now know when you will be able to pre-load the game (at least on the PS4). Pre-load will be available starting October 22nd.
Red Dead Redemption 2 launches on October 26 for the PS4 and Xbox One.
