GTA 5 is now free to download from the Epic Games Store, which means it’s yours to keep forever if you snag it before May 21. It is now available to download here if you have an Epic Games Store account, though demand is so high that Epic is struggling to meet demand for the time being, so you might struggle to load the page until that’s fixed.
