Game sizes are bloating up to real big numbers- up to 40GB+ and even 100GB+ if it has 4K textures like Forza Motorsport 7. Microsoft are working on what we first heard of the Intelligent Install system for the Xbox One and now we have more example of it in action with Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
The Master Chief Collection is a remaster of Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST and Halo 4. Except ODST which only has a campaign, all of the games have separate campaign and multiplayer games, which clocks in at around 65GB.
In a Twitter conversation, 343 Community Manager Brian Jarrard and showcased the new feature working on the Master Chief Collection, to be available in an upcoming update. Players can choose which game in the collection, and which mode to install on the hard drive. Players can also prioritise which package to download first.
Sal my friend, we have you covered. Here's a little work-in-progress glimpse of how the new MCC Intelligent Delivery feature is coming together: pic.twitter.com/If6DRatnV9

It’s a neat touch and something we love to see in games which features multiple modes that players may or may not want to have all at once- like a Call Of Duty game- or games with multiple games within them such as Rare Replay. This should help players squeeze out more space in the hard drive for more games to be installed.
This is not live yet, but should be coming in the next update for the game.
