There has been no update on The Winds of Winter for a long time, and I think I speak for everyone when I say we want to know when it’s going to come out. It’s been seven years, and we still haven’t gotten a sequel to A Dance with Dragons from George R. R. Martin. It keeps on getting pushed back, and this point, it seems like GRRM would instead work on spin-off novels than finish what he started.
The Winds of Winter Release Date
For those of you who don’t know, Fire And Blood is supposed to come out later this year, and it will take us deep down in the Targaryen history. While that is great, at this point, I think the fans would just be much more excited if he chose to tackle the real problem instead and tell us when The Winds of Winter is supposed to come out. We’ve waited long enough for.
Of course, we know nothing conclusive as of yet, but I’ll try to share what I know with you guys. According to George, Winds of Winter will come out eventually. For now, his priority seems to have shifted from The Winds of Winter to Fire and Blood, and now that Fire and Blood will come out within a month’s time from now, there really isn’t much he has to work on. Previously, he told us that The Winds of Winter is close to completion, and if that’s indeed the case, I think we can expect a 2020 release for The Winds of Winter. I hope I’m wrong, and the book comes out in 2019, but knowing the pace that Martin works at, I think 2020 is a fair assessment, keeping all that in mind.
Game of Thrones TV show returns in 2019 for its final season, while a prequel to the series is also planned for 2020. If you’re a fan of the series, things are looking great for all of us. But of course, we’d like it better if Martin keeps his word and comes out with this next installment of ASoIaF.
