The Winds of Winter release date is still a mystery even though George RR Martin promised to deliver the book this year. Fans will now hopelessly wait for the next TWOW deadline but Martin is in no mood to give out dates this time. It has also led to several fans behaving rudely with GRRM which is further delaying Winds of Winter release.
It has been nine years since the last book in “A Song of Ice and Fire” series came out and fans are asking George to complete the book soon. George RR Martin recently gave an update to the fans on how much time will The Winds of Winter release and publishing take place.
George RR Martin on The Winds of Winter Progress Rate
George RR Martin recently updated his blog post and shared the latest update on The Winds of Winter progress with the fans. Even though Martin is having a tough time focusing on the writing, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the fantasy writer to work on the book.
Let me assure you that, when not sweating out election returns or brooding over other real-world problems, I have continued to work on ‘THE WINDS OF WINTER.
George Martin said that the book is far from complete and it will take time to finish the sequel. But the 72-year-old author also added, “I write a chapter at a time, a page at a time, a sentence at a time, a word at a time since it’s the only way and sometimes I rewrite.”

The Winds of Winter Release Date and Publishing Timeline
The Winds of Winter release date could be set in mid-2021 as per some of the reports. As per the Winter is Coming site, the final manuscript of “The Winds of Winter” book will be completed in 11 weeks and then it will be published next year.
Fans must only start a countdown after Martin has finished writing the Winds as the formatting, proofreading, publishing, etc. process will take some more time. Once the entire publication process is done, “The Winds of Winter” will be available in bookstores and online retailers so that fans could read the storyline.
