- The new season 5 update will be huge.
- A 'Pre-load' update is available on PS4 to reduce the server overload.
While Call of Duty Modern Warfare and Warzone has had huge updates in the past, due to its compelling graphics, the new COD MW & Warzone season 5 update coming on August 5, 2020, 11:30, IST, will particularly be a huge one.
hey all - season 5 is coming soon, and its [it's] big. with the update we're including all the new content for the season as well as optimizing our asset packs.Paul Haile, Infinity Ward
However, the good news is that only the update size will be big. They are actually updating their game assets so once you install the update, the game size will shrink.
its a priority for us to keep working on reducing the overall size of MW & WZ on your hard drives, but at the same time also delivering new seasons for everyone to enjoy. we'll continue to work on this and keep pushing space reductions out with future updates.— Paul Haile (@Tyrael) August 2, 2020

COD MW and Warzone season 5 preload is available on PS4
Since the season 5 update is very big, Infinity Ward has released a pre-load update on PS4. However, you can only install it on August 5, when season 5 goes live. The size of the update is around 36GB. And we expect some more smaller updates before the beginning of season 5 on August 5. Apparently, they have released this small update in order to prevent server overloading.
