After today's exquisite presentation of Unreal Engine 5, Epic Games may have an additional surprise. As we hear through the world wide grapevine, their store's next freebie is Grand Theft Auto V.

Epic Games Store's current free game of the week is Death Coming, a quirky puzzler that has you harvesting people as the Grim Reaper itself, and you've one more day to pick it up by the way. 

Now, we're used to seeing the company list the next game or games in advance, but this time around they wrote it's a Mystery Game.There's a timer ticking down, meaning it won't be revealed until the last moment, which further attracted attention. 

Not long after, Game Pressure reported that Grand Theft Auto V will go free in Epic Games Store. They claim to have heard it from reliable sources, and this is not all. 

Most games that went free on Epic's store came as starter editions of some sort, but GTA V seems to be coming in style. 

If indeed true, users will be treated to the Premium Edition of the game, so not only is Grand Theft Auto Online part of the offer - there's additional content too. 

We're talking about one of the finest games Rockstar and the gaming industry produced, and giving it for free would definitely one of the biggest statements Epic has made when it comes to attracting users.

We've less than 24 hours to go, 21 to be precise, after which we'll get to see for ourselves if Rockstar indeed teamed up with Epic on the offer. With the game seemingly earning more every year, it wouldn't be inconceivable that they're looking to expand their userbase, so here's to hoping.
