Deutsche Bank analyst Jeffrey Rand continues to believe that the acquisition of Fitbit (FIT) by Google (GOOG, GOOGL) will close. However, the fact that there was another party willing to make a bid close to the acquisition price should ease some concern about the potential impact on Fitbit's stock price if the Google deal falls through due to regulatory issues, Rand tells investors in a research note after the company released its preliminary proxy statement. According to CNBC, the "Party A" revealed in the proxy that was also interested in Fitbit is Facebook (FB). Rand believes Fitbit shares should inch up closer to its potential acquisition price, saying it now appears the company would have potential suitors even if the current deal falls through. He keeps a Hold rating on Fitbit shares.

CD Projekt (OTGLY) said in a statement posted to Twitter that its upcoming game "Cyberpunk 2077," which is set to come out on PC, Google Stadia (GOOG), Xbox One (MSFT), PlayStation 4 (SNE), Xbox Series X, and PlayStation 5, has been delayed by 21 days, with December 10 becoming its new release date. "The biggest challenge for us right now is shipping the game on current-gen, next-gen, and PC at the same time, which requires us to prepare and test 9 versions of it (Xbox One/X, compatibility on Xbox Series S/X, PS4/Pro, compatibility on PS5, PC, Stadia) while working from home," the company said. "Since Cyberpunk 2077 evolved towards almost being a next-gen title somewhere along the way, we need to make sure everything works well and every version runs smoothly. We're aware it might seem unrealistic when someone says that 21 days can make any difference in such a massive and complex game, but they really do." Reference Link
