"Winds of Winter" has been delayed for years now. With the news that "Game of Thrones" is developing several spinoffs, fans of the George R.R. Martin "A Song of Ice and Fire" novels are becoming more worried as the sixth book might never come out. Martin is reportedly assisting two of the "GOT" spinoff writers which might steal most of the author's time on finishing "Winds of Winter."

"Game of Thrones" is about to release its penultimate season and fans are still requesting for more story arcs. With that said, HBO played generous as it is reportedly airing several spinoffs and is already working on the development of the new set of series. The network has already commissioned four writers to work on the story and script of the spinoffs including Max Borenstein, Jane Goldman, Brian Helgeland and Carly Wray.

There are rumors that George R.R. Martin might work with Goldman and Wray for the spinoffs. It is said that he is needed for the writers to develop ideas that offshoot from his creations which served as the source materials for "Game of Thrones." With that said, fans of the "Song of Ice and Fire" books are becoming worried as "Winds of Winter" might once again be delayed.

Martin previously admitted that he is not yet done in writing "Winds of Winter" which is already long overdue. The author promised that it will hit the shelves before the premiere of "Game of Thrones" Season 6, but the HBO series is already heading towards its seventh installment, but no new Martin novel has landed on bookstores.

After failing to meet his deadline, he once again promised to deliver "Winds of Winter" this year, but his previous projects seemingly hindered him once again to wrap up the sixth book of "Song of Ice and Fire." It is now being speculated that Martin is working with another novelist to finish the book. Some others predict that the book will not come out until 2018, which will become a treat to promote "Game of Thrones" Season 8.

George R.R. Martin is yet to answer speculations about his involvement on the "Game of Thrones" spinoffs. Fans of "Winds of Winter" should then take the talks with a grain of salt and wait for HBO's announcement about the novelist's yet theoretical role on the new series.
