According to multiple sources and Epic Games themselves, GTA V will be free on the store starting today. In addition, once you have the game on your account, you can keep it forever. It is the first time Grand Theft Auto V has been given away for free.
According to a now-deleted tweet from Epic Games, Grand Theft Auto V will be free up until 21 May 2020 on the Epic Games Store. However, the game is not available yet so once it goes live we will share the link.

It is an ambitious move on Epic’s part to make GTA V free for everyone. The game has sold over 100 million units since launch. The company most likely wants to cash in on the online aspect of the game by giving it away to everyone who does not own a copy. GTA Online is riddled with hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of microtransactions. So much so that the game deserves to be free-to-play on its own.
As soon as GTA V is available on the store for free we will share the link right here so stay tuned.
