The Winds of Winter release date keeps getting delayed every year and even George RR Martin is now fed up with that. The 72-year-old has refused to give anymore deadline or release date as he knows that he won’t stay true to his promise. Martin says that he is writing new TWOW chapters and hopes to finish the book in 2021.
It has been a good year for the Game of Thrones fans as GRRM has been very expressive about his progress on The Winds of Winter book. If things go as per the plan, George RR Martin can actually finish The Winds of Winter in 2021 and fans can read the book very soon.
George RR Martin hopes to finish TWOW in 2021
George RR Martin in his recent blog post talked about his COVID-19 experience and revealed that he will take the vaccine soon. The Game of Thrones creator also shared the latest updates on The Winds of Winter and added that 2020 is the best year so far for the book.
January has gone past in the blink of an eye.
In the past, I have often written a year’s end round-up of sorts on my Not A Blog just before or after New Year’s. This last year, though… https://t.co/6sdiP71y6i

Martin also added that he has written hundreds of pages and now the fantasy writer is on a roll and has gotten his speed back. GRRM says that it might be possible that the isolation has helped him in writing The Winds of Winter at such great speed and his writer’s block is over. George RR Martin hopes that he conclude the Winds of Winter novel by 2021 without making any solid promises.
The Winds of Winter Release Date and Publishing Updates
The Winds of Winter release date is still not fixed and some of the reports claim that the book will be out by mid-2022. Let us assume that George RR Martin actually finished Winds of Winter manuscript before 2021 ends and it takes around 3-6 months for remaining processes such as editing, printing, publishing, distribution, etc. But unless Martin comes out with a copy of The Winds of Winter in his hands, fans should not believe in any of the release date reports.
