UPDATE TWO: The GTA 5 free-to-play game download agreement from the Epic Games Store has been confirmed to launch today, May 14, 2020.
The Epic Games Store launcher is down due to mass interest in claiming the latest free game download. However, when it returns, players should be able to claim GTA 5 for free until May 21, 2020.
UPDATE: GTA 5 would be the next free game available on the Epic Games Store this week. And while Epic Games has not revealed anything so far regarding its plans, they have provided a countdown until when its next free download is revealed.
The Epic Games Store countdown is expected to end at 4 p.m. GMT, and should be the time we finally know if that latest report is correct.
ORIGINAL: A surprise rumor surfaced this week that links GTA 5 and GTA Online appearing on the Epic Games Store as the next free download.
The popular title from Rockstar Games recently left Xbox Game Pass and was introduced as a PlayStation Now game last year.
And it’s worth noting that GTA 5 went from being available on PS Now straight to Game Pass, leaving only the PC platform with no subscription option.
And this week, a new rumor has surfaced that suggests PC gamers will get better and get the title for free.
The Epic Games Store has offered free PC titles since launch, ranging from the indie genre to games like World War Z.
And the next one is expected to be announced, with Epic Games listing their upcoming free-to-play title as a “mystery game.”
What makes this week a little different is that there’s also a countdown timer showing just when its next free game is announced.
This is expected to happen around 5 p.m. GMT on May 14, 2020, creating a hype around something that Epic Games is obviously excited about.
With a countdown timer and a placeholder for the mystery game, it would make sense for this to be a big game.
But there has been no official indication from Epic Games that they are about to release GTA 5 as a free download.
This is from a different source, with GamePressure claiming to have received the information from an anonymous but very knowledgeable source.
The site reports that GTA 5 will be available for free download from the Epic Games Store from May 14 to 21.
It would include the Premium Edition of GTA 5, which usually comes with the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack.
