If you go on the official news post straight from the official Battlefield Halo Support Twitter profile states that the download size for the HaloInfinite campaign will differ significantly between those who have the multiplayer installed and those without it. They recommend installing the MP before downloading the campaign to reduce the download time.
The file size for installing the multiplayer-only from 10amPST/1 pm EST/6 pm GMT with no prior Halo Infinite installation will be 26.53GB, while the MP and campaign together will be a rather large 48.42GB.
Suppose you have Halo Infinite multiplayer beta installed on your Xbox console or PC. In that case, it will be reduced to 3.97GB for multiplayer updates, 25.86GB campaign installation, and 29.83GB for all three together.
These sizes will vary depending on your platform. However, they give you an idea of how large the entire file is and how much it can be reduced by installing the Infinite multiplayer beta. If you have the opportunity, we recommend downloading the multiplayer before launch.
