George RR Martin admits Winds of Winter probably won't arrive in 2018

While HBO confirmed that Game of Thrones will return for its eighth and final season in 2019, George R.R. Martin remains less than forthcoming about the release of the long-awaited sixth book in his A Song of Ice and Fire book series, The Winds of Winter.

Look, you can ask George R.R. Martin about the release date for "Winds of Winter" all you want but you're not gonna get - oh wait, he does have an answer.

So there we have it; 2018 should see Fire and Blood Volume I, after which The Winds of Winter, Fire and Blood Volume 2 will be released. Instead, it's the companion book Fire & Blood, which will be a written history of the franchise's House Targaryen.

George RR Martin admits Winds of Winter probably won't arrive in 2018

'The first volume should be completed soon, ' Martin wrote. The last official entry in the saga, A Dance with Dragons, was released all the way back in 2011. The author also clarifies that Fire & Blood mostly "consists of the "sidebars" I originally wrote for The World of Ice & Fire" - yet another companion novel, released in 2014. These include the stories "The Rogue Prince", "The Princess and the Queen" and "Sons of the Dragon".

Replying to fans on his blog, Not A Blog, Martin said work continues on the fictional Westerosi encyclopaedia Fire and Blood, the first volume of which will come before The Winds of Winter. But not as much as I hoped a year ago when I thought to be done by now.

Speaking about the book's content in 2016, Martin said: "There are a lot of dark chapters right now in the book that I'm writing". Martin didn't hint as to when the book is to be expected, but information should become available in the coming months.
