The Winds of Winter release date has always been a mystery as George RR Martin has never delivered on the promised deadlines. It is almost a decade and fans are still waiting for the sixth book in “A Song of Ice and Fire” series to come out. Game of Thrones TV show has ended but readers of ASOIAF are yet to know what happens in the actual Winds of Winter book story.
While the next promised date given by GRRM for The Winds of Winter release is around July end, the Worldcon 2020 happening in New Zealand is canceled and it has left everything hanging on the author. However, the 71-year-old author recently updated fans on The Winds of Winter progress and when will the book come out.
George RR Martin on The Winds of Winter Writing Progress
George RR Martin is using the COVID-19 pandemic time to write The Winds of Winter and it is the best thing that happened to the book. The fantasy writer knows the risk of the Coronavirus outbreak and which is why he has gone under self-isolation.
I have to confess, after half a year of pandemic, I am showing signs of cabin fever. If nothing else, the enforced isolation has helped me write. I am spending long hours every day on THE WINDS OF WINTER, and making steady progress. https://t.co/i0DRw51PC7

The Winds of Winter Release Date Updates
The Winds of Winter release date was not exactly announced by George RR Martin but it is not that hard to speculate. There is no way Martin will finish the book with just a month remaining before the deadline. Although, we can predict that the COVID-19 pandemic will last around the end of this year and George will be able to finish TWOW book by then.
There are still chances that the fantasy writer pulls out a miracle and The Winds of Winter release date of July ending happens on time. It will make fans very happy as they can finally end the nine-year-long wait for The Winds of Winter book.
