Yes, he said late February to be more precise. See below:

During the Starliner press conference of yesterday, it was mentioned that the first mission of Dream Chaser is scheduled for late February 2023.

It's at 38 minutes of the video:

Sierra Nevada previously said that the first Dream Chaser launch would be scheduled for this year. I'm guessing that the ULA has delayed the first launch of the Dream Chaser by a few months because it is making preparations to mate the Peregrine lander with the first Vulcan rocket.

Dreamchaser was always gonna be the 2nd Vulcan launch.

Not that it matters but Dream Chaser was supposed to be the first Vulcan launch initially but it got bumped to second a while ago.

It seems that Dream Chaser, Peregrine, and Vulcan have all slipped repeatedly over the last few years and the dates of the two flights have been adjusted as a result. I suppose the order could reverse again, but this guess is based only on past history and not any inside information.

With the completion of the first Vulcan rocket around the corner next month, the question is whether any components for the second Vulcan to be used to launch the Dream Chaser spaceplane are being fabricated.

While it may get the 2nd engine next month, there is more than engines. Has the centaur V been completed yet?
