Whenever a new patch comes out, does that get added, and take up hard drive space? Like is it possible that this game could take up all of my hd space eventually?

    Yes it is possible, but they have said that they plan to reduce the file size in 2020. Everyone will have to redownload the game after they do that.

    Did they say when that was occuring? Cuz the game is already taking up almost 200 gb of my hard drive and I only have another 300 gb to give it...

    Shouldn't be more than 70GB or so. Do you have the PTS installed? The PTS is a 2nd full copy of the game taking up just as much (or even more) space as the live game.

    no i don't have the PTS installed. But if every patch takes up more HD space, then it adds up doesn't it?

    Well yes, but again, my game folder is only about 70GB. Sounds like your launcher doesn't clean up temp files after patching.
