This gives ByteDance until January 19, 2025 to sell TikTok. An additional 90 day extension could be offered by President Biden if...

From the same company trying to sell you a $130 version of Star Wars Outlaws.

    Starfield Preloads Begin August 17

    Why yes, that's tomorrow!

    Bethesda and Microsoft have confirmed to the world that Starfield has gone gold!

    Hurrah for a change in release date that isn't a delay.
