‘The Winds of Winter’ Release Date: George RR Martin Finally Reveals What Fans Have Been Waiting For, Announces ‘TWOW’ Due Date!

“The Winds of Winter” finally has a release date and fans are rejoicing! George RR Martin recently unveiled his deadline for the anticipated sixth book in the “A Song of Ice and Fire” and this stirred the web as people express their excitement on social media. However, there were also some who told the author that this better be the real due date because they will really be disappointed again after many delays that spanned for eight years already.

The “ASOIAF” was where the HBO hit drama “Game of Thrones” was based and although “The Winds of Winter” was not released yet, the TV series’ run has ended recently in the eight and final season. Thus, fans can expect some difference in how “TWOW” will unravel the story of Winterfell as compared to “GoT.”

In any case, the big reveal came after Air New Zealand invited Martin to come to their home country by telling him how he will be able to get more inspiration and energy to complete “The Wind of Winter” which has been delayed for years. The invitation is actually an advertisement and many who watched it praised the brilliant concept of the ad.

In the ad, the New Zealand’s airline tells George RR Martin, “We’ve noticed that between red carpets and talk show interviews you’re having a bit of trouble finishing your next ‘Game of Thrones’ book, ‘The Winds of Winter.’ The novel that the world is, let’s face it mate, absolutely fanging for now more than ever.”

After the intro, the airline invited the 70-year-old author to visit New Zealand. “So how are you meant to be creative when you’re probably as nervous as a Stark with a wedding invite?” the voiceover in the ad said. “Fortunately, we’ve got the perfect solution. An epic trip to New Zealand on us.”

Now, this advertisement led to something big as Martin took the time to give his reply on the invitation and unexpectedly, he divulged his due for “The Winds of Winter.” In his own blogsite, the author thanked the airline for the gesture and revealed that even without their invite, he will surely go back to NZ because he loves the country.

He went on to say that he will be there next year to attend the World Science Fiction Convention on July 29, 2020. At the end of his note, he mentioned “The Wind of Winter” and said that he is close to publishing the book and added that if he is not able to release it by July 2020, they can put him in jail.

Finally, with the big reveal, one commented on the ad’s clip: “Congratulations. George accepted your invitation and even gave himself a deadline for Winds of Winter at the World Con that's taking place in New Zealand in July 2020.” Watch the NZ airline ad below:
