The Winds of Winter release date keeps getting delayed due to one reason or another and now there is another thing added to the list. George RR Martin is kind of spending his time watching movies, editing books, attending events, and now he will get busy developing another Game of Thrones spin-off.
No, I am not talking about STAR WARS…I've spent the morning watching Joe Biden being sworn in as president. Joe is not the orator that Obama and JFK were, but I found his speech profoundly moving. He said all the right things… https://t.co/QPDtpePLma pic.twitter.com/fucdFklJTH

There are new reports that HBO is considering a new Game of Thrones spin-off show and the unique part is that it will be animated instead of live-action. While it is great news for the GOT fandom, readers waiting for The Winds of Winter are not happy as they are worried that the book release will get delayed further.
Game of Thrones Animated Spin-off in the Works
HBO has been developing several Game of Thrones spin-offs including prequels after the original show ended. While some of the shows were scrapped, others are in development and things will be clear very soon. As per the THR reports, the next Game of Thrones spin-off could be animated and George RR Martin is directly working on the project along with the HBO executives.
It has also been reported that the Game of Thrones anime series will release on HBO Max rather than the regular HBO channel and soon everything will be shifted to the streaming service. There are not many details about the animated Game of Thrones show, but it will have mature content and aimed at the adult audience, it being an anime doesn’t mean there will be lots of gore and violence.
The Winds of Winter Release Date Delay Possible
The Winds of Winter release date is currently reported as Summer 2020 but with the way George RR Martin is taking new projects, the book will never be finished. It all depends on the 72-year-old author as no one else would complete the books in case he is gone. All we can do is hope that Martin realizes the importance of the book and writes The Winds of Winter soon and announces a release date.
