George RR Martin has been working on The Winds of Winter for almost a decade and yet he is far away from finishing the book. Most of the fans are frustrated with the author taking so long and things have gotten worse after the Game of Thrones Season 8 fiasco.
Everyone now wants to read Winds of Winter so that they can know the real storyline and not the mess created by D&D on HBO. But the fact is unless GRRM is done with the book, The Winds of Winter won’t see the light of this day. Martin recently gave a few hints on The Winds of Winter progress and it might be enough to figure out a release date.

Martin has clearly hinted that he still has a long way to go before he finishes TWOW and it might clearly take a year or two. It is not easy to write such a complex book and George will take his sweet time to finish the storyline.
The Winds of Winter Release Date Updates
The Winds of Winter release date will be set around late 2022 or 2023 at the earliest as per most of the reports. George RR Martin has to finish the book so that it can come out in stores and unless that happens, fans can only hope for it. The Winds of Winter is long-awaited and everyone wishes the book comes out as soon as possible.
