Another release date of “Winds of Winter” has surfaced online. However, with no word yet from author George RR Martin, fans are sceptical about anything circulating online. The book was expected to have been out by now; however, no announcements have been made so far.

The new release date appears to come from an online bookstore. The Google search result that supposedly gives away the date has been posted on Reddit. According to the post, the next book in “A Song of Ice and Fire” series is expected to be released by July 2019. Readers should note that the last season of “Game of Thrones” is expected to be out by that time.

Commenting on the post, some fans pointed out that many online bookstores have placeholders for the release of upcoming books; however, the dates mentioned may not be right. The first place where the fans will find out about the launch of the upcoming book will be on Matin’s blog. So far, the author has been saying he is yet to complete the book.

One fan complained about Martin focusing more on some of his other projects, like his “Wild Cards” series being adapted for TV. There are also a few other series being developed into TV shows based on his work. On top of this, Martin is expected to attend events and conferences, which he has tried to cut down on drastically.

Meanwhile, the wait for “Winds of Winter” is turning out to be a long one. The “Game of Thrones” TV series has also revealed some of the plot lines and major events of the book. However, there will still be differences between the show and the two remaining books.
