  • The abrupt suspension of Ant Group’s initial public offering in Shanghai and Hong Kong has greater impact for Asia than the U.S. election result, according to the CIO of Reyl Singapore, Daryl Liew.

CD Projekt Red Developers Are Getting Death Threats After ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ Delay

Yesterday, developer CD Projekt Red once again delayed the hotly-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 from its original November release date to December 10, 2020.
