GTA 5 Android APK: Real or fake?
There are several websites and videos that claim to provide players with download links to the popular game on Android. However, it is important to note that Rockstar Games hasn’t ported GTA 5 onto Android and iOS. Hence, most of these videos and websites claiming to provide such links are illegitimate.
Since the game is not officially released, downloading these versions might pose a risk to the security of the device and can also be harmful to it. Moreover, these versions also are unstable, since porting a game of this size on to a mobile phone is quite a difficult task.
Hence it is recommended to stay away from such APKs, since they are likely to be fake. Players should only download the game from Google Play Store, in turn supporting the developers of the game. Doing anything else would be termed as illegal and cheating, and could result in bans for the player, account and device.
