The last A Song of Ice and Fire book to be released was A Dance with Dragons seven years ago.
While fans have the Game of Thrones TV show to enjoy, The Winds of Winter still doesn’t have an official release date.
And it looks like fans may be losing the buzz for it, having discussed every possibility of what will happen.
One fan certainly feels this way, pointing out how the content quantity on the ASOIAF Reddit has significantly declined.
User F1reatwill88 posted: “I crossed fully from ‘I believe this book is coming out and I’m excited as s*** about it’ to ‘I think it is coming out but unless it’s a relate date I don’t want to hear about it’. (came across in 2011).
“What’s really sad is how the content of this sub has dropped in quantity, not from a lack of passion, but of literally everything from the books having been discussed.
“I pretty quickly went from basically living here to checking once a week. Kinda sucks.”
However Martin has stated he hopes The Winds of Winter will release in 2018.
The model also predicted September 29, 2027 for A Dream of Spring, the final book in the series.
With their estimate off the back of that being between April 18, 2027 and March 12, 2028 – when Martin will be 79-years-old.
