GTA 5 free download rumour: Epic Games Store to add Grand Theft Auto this week?

GTA 5 free download rumour: Epic Games Store to add Grand Theft Auto this week?

A surprise rumour has surfaced this week that links GTA 5 and GTA Online appearing on the Epic Games Store as the next free download.

The popular Rockstar Games title recently left Xbox Game Pass and was featured as a PlayStation Now game last year.

And it’s interesting to note that GTA 5 went from being available on PS Now straight to the Game Pass, leaving just the PC platform without a subscription option.

And this week has seen a new rumour surface suggesting that PC gamers will be going one better and getting the title for free.

The Epic Games Store has been offering up free PC titles since it launched, spanning from the Indie genre to games like World War Z.

And the next one is overdue to be announced, with Epic Games listing its next free title as a “mystery game”.

What makes this week a little different is that there is also a countdown showing just when its next free game will be announced.

This should be happening at around 5pm GMT, on May 14, 2020, building hype around something that Epic Games is obviously pumped about.

With a countdown and a mystery game placeholder, it would make sense that this would be a big game.

But there have been no official hints from Epic Games that they are about to launch GTA 5 as a free download.

That comes from a different source, with GamePressure claiming that they have been given the information from an anonymous, but very well-informed source.

The site reports that GTA 5 will be available to download for free from the Epic Games Store on May 14 until May 21.

It will reportedly include the Premium Edition of GTA 5, which usually comes with the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack.

“The Grand Theft Auto V: Premium Online Edition includes the complete Grand Theft Auto V story experience, free access to the ever evolving Grand Theft Auto Online and all existing gameplay upgrades and content including The Doomsday Heist, Gunrunning, Smuggler’s Run, Bikers and much more,” the official Rockstar Games description reads.

“You’ll also get the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack, the fastest way to jumpstart your criminal empire in Grand Theft Auto Online.”


The Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack is the fastest way for new GTA Online players to jumpstart their criminal empires with the most exciting and popular content plus $1,000,000 bonus cash to spend in GTA Online – all content valued at over GTA$10,000,000 if purchased separately.


Tear through the streets with a range of 10 high performance vehicles including a Supercar, Motorcycles, the weaponized Dune FAV, a Helicopter, a Rally Car and more. You’ll also get properties including a 10 car garage to store your growing fleet.
