Game of Thrones fans are in for some bad news. The highly-anticipated sixth book of A Song of Ice and Fire, The Winds of Winter will not be out in 2018.

 

In a press release about the publication date for Fire and Blood, the history of the Targaryens, George R.R. Martin said, "No, winter is not coming not in 2018, at least. Youre going to have to keep waiting for The Winds of Winter."

 

"You will, however, be able to return to Westeros this year. I do want to stress indeed, I want to shout that Fire and Blood is not a novel. This is not a traditional narrative and was never intended to be lets call this one imaginary history instead," the famous author continued. "The essential point being the history part. I love reading popular histories myself, and thats what I was aiming for here (Though there are enough stories here for twenty novels. Battles, bloodshed, betrayals, love, lust, horror, religious wars, politics, incest, historical revisionism, all the fun stuff) . As for me, Im returning once again to The Winds of Winter."

No, winter is not coming not in 2018, at least. Youre going to have to keep waiting for The Winds of Winter.
