Halo 5 requires “up to 60GB of hard drive space” according to leaked copies

The install size of Halo 5: Guardians has been confirmed as early retail copies to surface.

Halo 5: Guardians only went gold last week, but sneaky players are already getting their hands on the game.

Images uploaded to Imgur give us a detailed look at the game’s box art, revealing that “up to 60GB” of hard drive space will be needed to install and play the game.

The leaked images suggest early copies of the game could have come from a retailer or warehouse preparing to ship the game.

This wouldn’t be too surprising, as early copies of Halo 4 also made it into the wild back in 2012.

60GB is a pretty hefty install size however, especially for the standard 500GB Xbox One models.
