Fergusson also confirmed that the 54 GB size includes the day 1 patch for the digital version of the game, but it will have to be downloaded separately for the retail verison. This means that if you bought Gears of War 4 at launch, you will have to wait for it to download the 11 GB day patch before you can start with it.
