Rockstar has revealed that the game will have 88 GB file size on Xbox One. We previously came to know that Red Dead Redemption 2 on PlayStation 4 takes 105 GB storage. Looking at the file sizes of both of the consoles, one thing is clear that you will need a lot of vacant storage to play the game.

This was expected since we know how much of gigantic effort Rockstar has put into Red Dead Redemption 2. Reportedly, in an interview recently with Vulture, Rockstar said that they had 1200 actors working on the game. Also, there are almost 300,000 animations in the game with over 500,000 lines of dialogue.

The first game had 8.17 GB storage on PlayStation 3 and since it was on previous generation hardware 8.17 GB was still considered big. Normally, the games in previous generation were of 4-6 GB storage.

Comparatively, if you look at the another hit success game of Rockstar, Grand Theft Auto takes upto 72 GBs of space on PlayStation 4. While Red Dead Redemption 2 is boasted since its reveal to be a much bigger game than GTA, it is safe to assume that 88 GB file size is only relevant.

Whatever console you decide to get Red Dead Redemption 2 on, you are more likely to delete couple of your games first. The file size is applicable to both physical disc version and digital version of the game.
