So 2021 fielding to 2023 fielding. Pushbacks and changes yet to come.

The program is still on track but you now have confirmation that the US Army WILL be replacing 5.56mm sooner rather than later.

From post 175:

The timeline is tight, by weapons development standards, as the Army expects the companies to have a mature weapon, possibly ready for fielding, in just over two years, or late 2021, Lt. Col. Jason Bohannon, head of PEO Soldier, Crew Served Weapons, told Military Times in January.

The program is still on its original track with the goal of having a mature weapon ready for fielding by late 2021.

They expect that prototype will be ADOPTED in early 2022 and fielded by 2023. The original timeline has not changed.
