There’s been a lot of talk and speculation over the past week or so about just how large the file size for Red Dead Redemption 2 will be once it arrives next week. A recent listing on Microsoft’s official website seemed to indicate the size of the game on Xbox One, but as we’ve now learned directly from Rockstar, that listing was incorrect.

Rockstar finally listed the official file sizes for both the Xbox One and PS4 versions of Red Dead Redemption 2 on their official website today and you might want to clear some space on your hard drive before picking up the game for yourself. Depending on whether or not you purchase Red Dead Redemption 2 digitally or physically won’t affect your file size all that much unless you happen to be getting it on PS4. If that’s the case, you’ll need an extra 50 GB on top of the game’s initial size.

The official sizes for both versions of Red Dead Redemption 2 are as follows:

Disc Installation:

  • PS4 – 99 GB installation space
  • Xbox One – 107 GB installation space

Digital Installation:

  • PS4 – 99 GB installation space with an additional 50GB for the installation process

  • Xbox One – 107 GB installation space

I don’t think anyone expected the install of Red Dead Redemption 2 to be small, but a minimum of 99 GB is still pretty staggering. Luckily, if you’re getting the game digitally you can at least begin the pre-loading process tomorrow.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is slated to arrive next week on October 26 for Xbox One and PS4. If you haven’t checked out today’s new launch trailer, you can head over here to watch it right now.
