If you have found that you have experienced an issue where your Xbox game keeps downloading or updating beyond the expected download size, you are not alone. We’ve noticed a few reports of this over the past few weeks.

Why does this happen? We are not 100% sure. It may just be a visual bug, as some Xbox users suggest it will eventually end even despite what it says, but it’s a mystery why it’s becoming more common right now:

It also happened to us here on Pure Xbox, but luckily it wasn’t too late in the download, so we just restarted the console (going to Settings, then Restart) and tried again – and then the bug came to disappear.

Instances of this are still pretty isolated at the moment, so it’s not exactly the biggest problem in the world, but if you’re working with limited bandwidth or a particularly slow connection, it’s a very irritating problem when it appears.

Hopefully Team Xbox can find a way to make this a thing of the past in the near future.
