Most of us have seen the epic tv series ‘Game of Thrones‘ on HBO. And we know that it is based on the fantasy saga written by George R R Martin. Although the series has ended there are still 2 books left to release. Winds of Winter is the next installment in the epic fantasy series ‘A Song Of Ice And Fire’. It is the 6th book in the saga and is said to have more pages than any other of its predecessors. Nothing sure could be said about the Winds of Winter release date until now.
Let’s find out what George R R Martin said in his recent interview about the release date of this new book.
Winds of Winter Release Date
It has been more than 9 years since the release of ‘A Dance With Dragons’. It was the 5th book in the series of 7 books written by George R R Martin. The next two books in the series will be called ‘Winds of Winter’ and ‘A Dream of Spring’.
The writing style of Mr. Martin is different than most of fantasy writers. He tasks his time before releasing any book. And for him, length of the book has never been a topic of concern. The last book in this series was released in 2011. And the writer took 6 years to release this book. But this time he is taking more than usual and all the predictions being wrong no one knows anything. Fans of Game of Thrones are questioning its release date.
What George R R Martin Said About the Release Date
When asked to him in an interview Martin said that he does not want to bind his creativity in date and does not want to make any promises. It will release when it is completed. He also added that for the last 20 years he has been saying ‘Winter is Here’. And this time it is here so he wants to make it as realistic as possible and do not want to haste into it.
He also said “I wrote hundreds and hundreds of pages of THE WINDS OF WINTER in 2020. The best year I’ve had on WOW since I began it. Why? I don’t know. Maybe the isolation. Or maybe I just got on a roll. Sometimes I do get on a roll.”
So according to this statement winds of winter release date could be at the end of 2021.
Fans of Game of Thrones know it better than anyone else on what happens when you bind creativity in a time limit. So, let’s not rush and wait for a perfect ending that the series deserves.
