Some players on the Xbox One are reporting over 84GB download sizes for Call Of Duty Modern Warfare Season 4. Publisher Activision has since clarified that this is a mistake, and they’re working on fixing the issue.
As previously reported, the Xbox One file size should be around 44.3GB, and not double that.
We’re actively investigating an issue for #ModernWarfare where some players on Xbox are seeing a larger than expected download size for today’s update. Stay tuned for updates

This was already corroborated by Senior Communications Manager Ashton Williams last night; that players should expect a massive initial download size. However (in the same tweet), she also clarified that it will ultimately only be 4GB in total when the update finishes installing.
The Season 4 download is going to be large. In order to reduce the overall disc space that MW and WZ take up, we’re compressing a bunch of assets. Once installed, the S4 launch will only take up an additional 4GB on consoles for all of the new content.
