Hey there everybody,
In order to separate out the issues we’ve seen today with Modern Warfare installations, we’re making multiple threads to direct players to. We’re tracking three different issues at this time.
- Game installations are larger than expected (Up to 171 GB) <- You are at this thread
- Slow or stuck game downloads
- BLZBNTAGT00000840 or BLZBNTAGT000008A4 errors
If you’re having one of the other issues, please visit the other thread.
For the large download issue, it appears that the game client has become damaged or unrecognizeable for some reason, and is having to be reinstalled for some players. Of note - a 20 GB patch is normal for this update. Players who are having large download problems are having installs of 80 or 171 GB due to the game fully reinstalling itself.
Edit: Previously this topic requested log files to be emailed to us, but thanks to the response of players here, and we used them to patch the Battle.net client. At this time, we believe the issue to be resolved. Follow these steps to pick up the fix.
Sorry this got in the way of you getting in game and enjoying the evening, but thanks to everybody who reported this issue.
