“The Winds of Winter” release date rumors have been circulating since long, but there has been no confirmed update from the writer, George RR Martin himself. The man behind the script of the popular HBO series “Game of Thrones” was to release the sixth volume in the series of his famous novel “A Song of Ice And Fire” a long time ago.
Fans expected Martin to come out with the book during the “Game of Thrones” Season 6. However, now it seems that the sevenths season of the series will also precede the release of “The Winds of Winter” as Martin is pretty busy with some other projects.
‘The Winds Of Winter’ Release Rumors Update
According to The Christian Post, the “Game of Thrones” Season 7 will release in July. Rumors suggest that there is a possibility that the book might release in June. The source says that it is quite possible that “The Winds of Winter” may hit the stores in June just weeks before the start of the seventh season of the popular HBO series.
However, there is another speculation that suggests that George Martin may release the book in 2018 just in time for the release of eight and final season of “Game of Thrones”. Incidentally, the speculation also suggests that the book will be released to mark the birthday of George Martin.
At present, all of these are just rumors and speculations and no one knows for sure when the much-waited “The Winds of Winter” will release.
