Why the ---- does Call of Duty Ghost requires 50 GB HDD space?

That's like 5x of what prev COD games would take up. Why do they need that much space for?

Their new super advanced fish AI perhaps?

It's probably for the dog.

I'm just guessing but it's probably because the other consoles use blu-ray, lack of compression and an increase in asset sizes e.g. higher quality models, etc.

It is for the dog. They have about tens of billions of millions lines of code for the dog, as well as thousands of ultra detailed modelling and textures for every situation.

Don't forget that they even model hairs on the hairs, each with their own textures.

4k-minded textures, I'm guessing. nVidia seems pretty keen on pushing that lately.

Waste of time 4k textures

The dog is someone you care about. It needs all the HDD space you can give it.
