Will The 'Winds Of Winter' Release Date 2016 Happen By The Second Half Of Year?

The "Winds of Winter" release date 2016 still has not been revealed yet. Moreover, George R.R. Martin seems to be in no hurry to publish the highly-anticipated novel.

According to Christian Times, there are rumors that the "Winds of Winter" release date 2016 may happen in the coming months. This is contrary to earlier speculations that the sixth installment of Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" fantasy series will be released in May.

Apparently, the author has not finished writing the book. Because of the delay, it is believed that the "Winds of Winter" release date will happen later this 2016.

The publication noted that there are initial reports claiming that George R.R. Martin has already completed the final version of "WoW" and that a copy of the book is being prepared for printing.

Meanwhile, News Everyday reported that Martin has clarified that the book is in the process of creation. George R.R. Martin has recently released a new chapter for the "Winds of Winter." The excerpt was written from Arianne Martell's perspective.

"We've also changed the 'WINDS OF WINTER' sample on my website, replacing the Alayne chapter that's been there for the past year with one featuring Arianne Martell," Martin wrote on his Live Journal. "You want to know what the Sand Snakes, Prince Doran, Areo Hotah, Ellaria Sand, Darkstar, and the rest will be up to in 'WINDS OF WINTER?' Quite a lot, actually."

Martell is the firstborn daughter and heir of the Dornish Prince Doran. She has not appeared in "Game of Thrones" yet but there is a big possibility that she will be coming to the show soon.

The new "Winds of Winter" chapter talked about the princess' journey across the countryside. She is sent on a mission by her father to find the truth about a man claiming to be Aegon Targaryen, the son of Elia Martell who is believed to be dead.
