'The Winds Of Winter' Release Date & Update: George RR Martin's Book Nowhere Near Finished

When news broke out that the latest installment of "The Song Of Ice And Fire" series of books was going to be delayed, fans were distraught; not only because the sixth book "The Winds Of Winter" was long overdue, because the books of "The Song Of Ice And Fire" have been the main inspiration behind the hit HBO series "Game Of Thrones."

So when author George R.R. Martin confirmed that he was unable to finish the book on the due date, people made a big commotion out of it.

Many of Martin's fans backed the author up and hoped that he would finish "The Winds Of Winter" in time, before the 6th season of "Game Of Thrones" airs. Unfortunately, "The Winds Of Winter" is still very much in need of many revisions and content writing.

"I am months away still... and that's if the writing goes well. (Sometimes it does. Sometimes it doesn't.) Chapters still to write, of course... but also rewriting," Martin explained on his blogpost. "I always do a lot of rewriting, sometimes just polishing, sometimes pretty major restructures."

There were even rumors that Martin wanted to have a co-author to finish "The Winds Of Winter." However, these rumors were squashed when Martin revealed that he did not want a co-author.

As for "Games Of Thrones," the story will continue as it is. Martin, as one of the producers of the show, already discussed how the story goes with the other producers. Still, "The Winds Of Winter" book gives fans a look-through on how the HBO series will go.

"Game Of Thrones" will be released soon and it is highly possible that there is no chance for "The Winds Of Winter" to be out before the show. 2017 might be the year when "The Winds Of Winter" will be released and fans could already be lacking enthusiasm for the book.
