There are no plans to announce other platforms.
For example, 32bit Linux is not on the above list, but it seems that you can judge that there is no release plan for Oracle Database 20c

It's important to note that the release date depends on the corresponding platform.
Even if Oracle Database 20c is released, it can not be used immediately on Windows.
For example, in the case of 19c, it will first be available on Exadata, it will be available on Linux x86-64, and other supported platforms will increase steadily.
