Free Grand Theft Auto 5 ‘confirmed by Epic Games advert’
GTAV said to be free until May 21
An advertisement has seemingly confirmed that Grand Theft Auto V will be free via the Epic Games Store from today.
The promoted Tweet – now deleted, but captured via the embed below – claims GTAV will be free until Thursday, May 21.
Along with access to Grand Theft Auto Online, all content will be free to keep forever if added to your library during the promotional period, it’s claimed.
UPDATE: The Epic Games Store and Launcher are experiencing issues including crashes after GTA V was released as a free game.
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: GTAV was previously made available via the Xbox Game Pass library, but the game was replaced by fellow Rockstar title Red Dead Online earlier this month.
The Epic Games Store’s weekly free game promotion, which launched alongside the storefront in December 2018, will run throughout 2020.
Free titles on the Epic Games Store now “periodically” require that two-factor authentication be activated on users’ accounts before they’re able to be claimed.
Rockstar‘s parent company Take-Two said in February that GTA V had shipped 120 million copies since its September 2013 release.
Grand Theft Auto 6 is Rockstar’s next game but remains early in development, according to a recent report into working practices at the company.
