What happened to Nikon releasing 70-200mm f/2.8 Z mount on Oct 2019?

I bought a Z6 thinking we would have a 70-200mm native mount for this camera by end of 2019.  This lens was supposed to be released in Oct.  

What happened?

I believe it was only announced in Oct, I never saw a release date....

Why so serious?

The old roadmap claimed it would release in November '19, but the new roadmap studiously avoids any dates. Only lens information.

IOW it gets here when it gets here.

Perhaps it's coming with the rumored Z8 coming earlier 2020.

I'd be the first quarter of 2020 we'll see something from Nikon and Canon with their next steps.

It's entertaining to watch how each company fires back at each other.  I'd be curious to see if Nikon comes out with a short 70-200mm like what Canon did with their RF line.

Even more entertaining is how each new release will be a life changing event.

Maybe they saw Canons short compact one and went back to the drawing board?

I'm waiting for this one to be released as well.  I'd guess Feb 2020 we'll likely see it along with Z8.
