Info Please explain the format of CCS

The usmle website says that there will be 12 cases in 4 hours, so 20 minute for 1 case. Usmleworld says 9 cases with an average of 25 minute a case. MTB book says a 15+5 minute case. I think I read somewhere in usmle website (probably in "upcoming changes" page) that they are reducing the number of MCQ and the amount of time allotted for each CCS case and they talked about something like 8+2 minute thing but I can't find this page now.

Please, can someone clarify exactly how many cases we will face and what is the time for each case? Thanks

This is my first time posting on usmle forums. This site has so many good resources for USMLE Step 1, 2, and 3. I'm glad I found this forum.
