The Winds of Winter release date have become a mystery once again after George RR Martin missed another deadline. The 71-year-old author promised to release the sixth book in “A Song of Ice and Fire” series in August 2020, but we have entered September and yet there is no proper update. Martin has always been busy with other projects such as Game of Thrones or House of the Dragon, which is why the Winds of Winter book is not completed on time.
However, ever since the COVID-19 pandemic started, GRRM is actually working on TWOW and the book should be out soon. Fans on Reddit suggest that George RR Martin is editing the final draft of “The Winds of Winter” and the book should be out next year.
