After rumors of a 100+ GB install size ahead of Red Dead Redemption 2’s official launch, Rockstar has officially listed how much memory you’ll need to install their upcoming title. Pre-loads start tonight for digital pre-orders.
After the past few weeks of store listings, speculation and rumors regarding the install sizes of Red Dead Redemption II, Rockstar has finally lifted the veil on just how much memory you will need in order to play their upcoming sequel to their 2010 critically-acclaimed Red Dead Redemption.
Those looking to install the game on either PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. At this time, we don’t have exact information regarding the PC size of the game, but it’s safe to assume it’ll be somewhere close to both the PS4 and Xbox One versions.
After weeks of store listings and speculation, Rockstar has finally decided to give exact numbers on how much space you need to clear out to play Red Dead Redemption II. The numbers differ a little on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and, at least in the PS4 case, will differ depending on whether you go physical or digital. Please note all the information below has been obtained from the Rockstar support page in regards to Red Dead Redemption II.
- PlayStation 4: 99 GB installation space with an extra 50GB for the installation process
- Xbox One: 107 GB installation space
Due to the approximate 150GB install size on PlayStation 4, players will need to remember that the install size is massive due to how the PlayStation 4 file system works compared to that of the Xbox One’s. Regardless, the game itself is massive regardless of what platform you choose to play it on and will need additional space for post-launch content and patches.
Red Dead Redemption II is scheduled to release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next Friday, October 26.
