Original story: Grand Theft Auto 5is rumoured to be the free mystery game that will unlock in just over 15 hours today on the Epic Games Store.
Game Pressure cites an “anonymous, but very well-informed source” that alleges Grand Theft Auto 5 will be a free download on the Epic Games Store between 15-22 May here in Australia (of 14-21 May for our friends in North America and Europe).
While nothing’s confirmed, it would certainly be nice — Grand Theft Auto 5 was recently removed from the Xbox Game Pass program to make room for Red Dead Redemption 2, so it would fill the void. We’ll, of course, keep you posted as we learn more.
Grand Theft Auto 5 is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 and PS4.
