After the Epic Games Store has repeatedly given away game hits in the past, such as World War Z or Just Cause 4 recently, PC gamers can probably look forward to the biggest cracker so far: Measured against several clear indications, is GTA 5 – Grand Theft Auto 5 the next game that you can download for free from the Epic Games Store and keep forever.

Where did the rumor come from?
First, the relatively unknown website Gamepressure.com reported that it had learned from a safe source that GTA 5 would be the next free game in the Epic Store.

Is there the complete game?
According to the original source Gamepressure.com, the premium edition of Grand Theft Auto 5 is to be given away for free. It doesn't just contain that complete single player story, but also numerous bonuses for the multiplayer mode GTA Online.

This corresponds approximately to the price at which Just Cause 4 – which was recently given away by Epic – can be bought in the sale.
For the publisher of GTA 5, Rockstar Games, a free publication would also make sense: GTA Online would attract new players who are automatically potential customers for the numerous microtransactions in multiplayer mode.
Whether the rumors will be confirmed will be revealed later today. Until then, check out our GTA 5 review to see why the open world title is one of the best games ever.
