Destiny 2‘s file size for Xbox One was recently outted by the Xbox Live Marketplace, but its low amount of required space doesn’t align with previous file sizes leaked for the game.
According to the Marketplace listing, Destiny 2 will only take up 29.15 GB on Xbox One—barely more than half the size of other comparable shooters. What is curious about this size is that the game was previously clocked at 68 GB worth of content in a Gamestop listing. The original Destiny took up approximately 60 GB with all of its post-launch DLC, so while the new file size could be a placeholder, the 29.15 GB size seems the most realistic for Destiny 2.
The file size for the PlayStation 4 and PC versions of the game are not yet available, but they should clear up which file size is accurate once announced.
The preload date for Destiny 2 surfaced earlier this summer, revealing that PlayStation 4 players could begin downloading the shooter on September 3rd, three days before the full release. Reports suggested that Xbox One’s preload date would be September 5th, and while that only gives players a day to preload, it will be more than enough time if the game ends up supporting the smaller file size.
Destiny 2 is slated to launch September 6th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC release date of October 24th. The game recently received its ESRB rating with a description that teased some of the bizarre ways in which characters will die.
