What are the Upcoming Free Epic Games? I have the list that could be the next free games after GTA 5.
The Epic Game store is a digital video game storefront for Microsoft Windows and macOS. It was launched in the year 2018 as a website and a standalone launcher and is operated by Epic games. On May 14, Epic games listed the highly popular game Grand Theft Auto V (GTA V) for free.
The game went online for free at 8 PM on May 14 2020, and all of a sudden, a surge in users caused heavy traffic that leads to slow downs and error messages on the website as well as on the launcher application. However, this issue was addressed by Epic Games and is claimed to be working upon those issues.

Because of slowdowns, errors, and the Epic Games Launcher crashing, most of the users reported the issue. However, in a tweet, Epic acknowledged the problems and said that it was working on a fix.
The tweet was followed up with another tweet stating that there were still be some issues. But today morning, the company shared that it has “deployed updates to provide resolution for these issues,” and that most of the users should be able to access the Epic Games Store website and launcher.
The tweet further addressed the fact that the company will monitor traffic and will provide updates if any other issue is encountered. Well, I am glad that I claimed my copy of GTA V during the error and I was fortunate enough to read the site in English (yeah, some people got the Chinese, Portuguese and maybe a Farsi version of it.)
Epic Games store delightfully offers free games, titled as “mystery games”. These games can be downloaded by interested users, and they can keep these free games forever. This time it offered Grand Theft Auto V as the free game, and obviously, a large number of people visited the online store website as well as the launcher app to get the game.
This chaos and high demand caused heavy traffic on Epic’s servers, which led to slowdowns, errors, and the Epic Games Launcher crashing. There is no doubt regarding the popularity of GTA V, and even though it is 7 years old, the number of users still wanting to download the game comes as no surprise.
If you haven’t claimed the game, you have till May 21 to download the GTA V game and keep it forever.
