Fans are not happy about the latest rumors revolving around the highly anticipated "The Winds of Winter" release date. It is said that George R.R. Martin is focusing on a new project. It is then speculated that he will have no time to finish "TWOW."
According to Mobi Picker, "The Winds of Winter" may be further delayed due to other things that Martin is busy with. HBO recently announced that "Game of Thrones" will have four spin-offs for fans to look forward to. However, instead of enjoying the big news, some fans are unhappy.
This is because George R.R. Martin is said to be heavily involved with the upcoming "Game of Thrones" spin-offs. This could mean that he may need to put off work for "The Winds of Winter." For now, fans can only hope that he will have time to spare for the much awaited novel.
"The Winds of Winter" has been delayed for couple of years already. Fans have been wanting to hear the great news about the release date but George R.R. Martin admitted that he couldn't publish the book at the set date. "Game of Thrones" is set to unveil its seventh season this year but "TWOW" seems far from publication still.
It also appears that "Game of Thrones" will finish running its course on television before "The Winds of Winter" gets released. Deadline confirmed that "GOT" will have four spin-offs with GRRM directly involved in the writing. What does this mean for fans?
HBO has not yet provided the details about the upcoming spin-offs. However, it was revealed that the shows will "explore different time periods" in the world that GRRM created. "The Winds of Winter," on the other hand, has not mentioned anything about a release date yet.
"The Winds of Winter" is the seventh installment in Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" novel series. It was supposed to tie in with the sixth season of "Game of Thrones."
