Oracle Database 20c release information finally announced.
Although it is only displayed as "CY2020 (Calendar Year 2020)", it will be "I will announce it within 2020" ...
Oracle Database 20c Release Date List
|products||release date (GA)||memo|

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.
