The news about free GTA V on Epic Games Store has been published on the largest Polish gaming news portal, Gry-online.pl. Gry-online claims that they have a very credible source that they can't reveal.

Furthermore, free Grand Theft Auto V will be the Premium Edition of the game. The edition includes:

Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack (Grand Theft Auto Online content valued at over GTA$10,000,000)

As always - if you claim the freebie before the deal expires, it will stay in your library forever.

Rumour: Free GTAV on Epic Games Store May 14th

Damn! If GTAV is free, Epic must have beg Rockstars to do this for Epic. But of course, The premium online edition can be bought for $13, it's perfectly reasonable to expect the game to be a limited time freebie or included in a humble monthly by now.

(Take this with a grind of salt)

Well it is dirt cheap these days and it’s hard to imagine that there’s really all that many people who don’t have it already given it’s consistency for being in the monthly top tens for years now.

I figured everyone who wants it at this point owns it. The game has sold like crazy since its release.

Big if true. Take Two is one of the biggest supporters of the EGS.

This game is from 2013. They should be paying us to play it at this point. I'm still getting it for free, tho. Skipped it because i'm not into gta, but if its free i'll get it. Gonna suck having to download epic games store, something i've been ignoring since it came out.

Not to look a gift horse in the mouse, but the game is 7 years old.

I've been holding strong so far, mostly...only used it to buy Satisfactory.

Everything comes out on Steam and GoG eventually that is on the Tencent-Epic store temporarily.

Rockstar supposedly is making a lot of money in microtransactions so it is kind of a trap.

@adsparky: you can play a 60+ hour singleplayer game and not be bothered by microtransactions once.

Epic has probably a clever sense of humor, because i've got a message saying something like "bandwith is restricted in your region", yet i was downloading over 60+ MB/s.

On the other hand i usualy max out at 8 MB/s whenever i download anything MS store related for years, the irony...
