Within minutes of making the game free online the swell of demand caused the site to slow and send error messages.
Epic blamed the slowdown on "heavy traffic" and said it was working to fix the problem.
Grand Theft Auto, known as GTA to fans, is made by Rockstar Games and is one of the top selling gaming franchises.
Every week Epic Games makes a 'mystery game' available without charge on its store. The games are available for PCs or Macs. Users who download the week's mystery game can keep it forever, even when the free to download period expires.
On Wednesday it was announced Grand Theft Auto V would be this week's game.
The game became available at 11:00 EDT (15:00 GMT). Within minutes of the launch users began to report slowdowns and error messages.
On Twitter, the company tried to calm fans.
