Turned out to be fake news, but honestly I wouldnt mind. The show was going off the rails and it would've been a smart decision from the producers to not let RR publish the books before they ended the series to avoid drawing comparisons. Doesnt matter tho, turned out to be fake news.

Nintendo is selling their IPs to Microsoft and this is true because:

Wait, were people actually taking something like this seriously? Why on earth would either Martin or the show runners want the books to be delayed? Not only are they guaranteed to sell millions of copies upon release, but why would the show runners actively want to stop their actual source material to be published? Something like that benefits no-one.



I've never bought into this rumor but do we honestly believe if it was true that GRRM would admit it?

It's a shame that the books won't be out soon then. Or rather, who knows how long it'll take until he finishes them. If ever.

The only reason I can think of would be to not have major events of the last few seasons of the TV show leaked to fans through the books. Provided Dan & David kept following the source material, as they had mostly been doing until they passed the books.
But that can also go both ways, and many things we've seen in the TV show now may also happen in the books. But will probably be developed differently.
