Halo: The Master Chief Collection will require a hefty day-one update for anyone purchasing the game on disc. The collection will take up most of the space on its Blu-ray disc, which amounts to around 45GB. However, this includes only the campagin modes of each game, with the multiplayer and some other features requiring a 20GB install, according to a Microsoft statement to Kotaku:
The Master Chief Collection will take up almost all of the usable space of a single Blu-ray (45 GB), and we will also issue a content update at launch that is estimated to be 20 GB.
For those pre-purchasing the game digitally through the Xbox One or Xbox Store, the content update will be downloaded automatically before launch.
