Chances of GRRM finishing ASOIAF are near zero.

He condemned himself with all the new POV and extreme detail to not so important plots since AFFC, he is in a point where itīs really really hard to get out and he has no motivation to do it.

Itīs clear he had not a planned outline for his story.

The side work doesnt help. Hes got a big book on the Dragonkings coming out in like a week. The first of two. That plus he wrote an entire history of Westeros that came out a couple years ago. And I think 3 dunk and egg novels on Maester Aemons little brothers travels with the knight who ended up being lord commander of the kingsguard and I think dying in a fire Dannys older brother was born during or right after.

Hes got so much history written he doesnt get to the actual story.

He should worry about the history after the main story is done with.. Someone else can write the history of Westeros or Easteros years later when GRRM has retired from writing or hand out the project to someone to write or cowrite alongside him.

The pace he is going at with the main story, he will never finish.. It will be like Silmarillion from Tolkien, which his son had to put bits and pieces together and complete parts of it himself. Imagine if it had happened with the Lord of the rings trilogy, it would never be the same without Tolkien.. I would hate to see that happen with Song of ice and fire.

because there's no books to carry on the story

showrunners weren't as good as GRRM in writing conflicts, dialogues etc.

He's working on the easier stuff because he doesn't know how to finish the main story. All the unnecessary shit he added in the last 2 books while the Double Ds ignored it for good reason.
