A year ago, Epic Games Store suddenly gave away the blockbuster game Grand Theft Auto 5 for free as a mystery gift. And it seems like the company wants to make this a tradition as they have just announced another mysterious free game for gamers around the world next week.

Epic Games Store has given away quite a few games in the last year.

More specifically, Epic Game Store gave away The Lion's Song last Thursday. But after everything settled, the digital distributor triggered the gaming community's curiosity with a mysterious countdown timer.

Last year, they gave away GTA V in an exactly similar manner. This could be history repeats itself again. It makes every gamer wondering whether Epic Games Store is planning to give away a big AAA game for free.

Epic Games Store To Give Away Cyberpunk 2077?

Many players are led to believe that if Epic Games Store were to give away a AAA game, it could be Cyberpunk 2077. The game did not have the best launch as fans expected, so this might be CDPR's chance for redemption. On top of that, the game developers are planning on the first DLC release for Cyberpunk 2077, too! But there's no saying for sure.

Since its launch, Epic Games Store has become the center of attention and also controversy in the gaming community. Many gamers criticize the fact that studios choose to exclusively publish their games on the Epic Games Store. However, all hard feelings seem to melt away when Epic Games Store started giving away free games.

And they did a generous job as well! The digital distribution platform did not just give away cheap games, but rather expensive blockbuster titles such as Alien Isolation, Star Wars: Battlefront 2, Jurassic World: Evolution, Watch Dogs 2, and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection.

Cyberpunk 2077
Cyberpunk 2077 might be next on the list.

According to several reports, Epic spent more than $11 million on giving away free games in 2019. On top of that, they also spent a whopping $1.5 million on the Batman Arkham trilogy.
