Gamers all over the world wouldn’t think twice before declaring the Epic Games as their saviour since it has given them what they just needed in order to kill their time during Quarantine.

Well, one wouldn’t get surprised by the fact that this game has a cult fan following since it has two different editions. While the original edition released in September 2013 was for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the enhanced edition released in June 2014 was for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The reason for the same was the growing popularity of the game, as the enhanced version had additional content.
Let’s further talk about what exactly happened after the company put the game for free on it’s online store. The Epic Games Store experienced almost an eight-hour-long outage last night because of the obvious fact that gamers all across the world were trying to download it for free. Since the company did not officially announce that GTA V would be available on their store for free, the news spread among people through word of mouth, which reinforces the idea of the game being so popular.
Epic Games confirmed the same via a tweet today which reads, “We are currently experiencing high traffic on the Epic Games Store. We are aware that users may be encountering slow loading times, 500 errors, or launcher crashing at this time and we are actively working to scale. We’ll provide an update as soon as we can.” In another tweet posted a while after the first one states, “We appreciate your patience as we continue to work towards a resolution to mitigate traffic.”
