Update: I’m getting mixed information as to whether or not it will be an official announcement tomorrow or just more information about the Canon EOS R3.
Canon will officially announce the Canon EOS R3 on June 29, 2021. This date is based on living in the western hemisphere. We will obviously have full coverage of the launch.
Canon will also announce the RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM lens on the same day.
Canon EOS R3 Specifications:

24mp (Rumored) 30.1mp (Rumored) backside illuminated image sensor
Multi-Controller & Smart Controller
Vari-Angle Touch Screen
NEW accessory shoe
Wifi 5GHz
High speed 30fps electronic shutter with AF/AE...

I hope they have various FPS rates for the electronic shutter usage - 30 fps if forced would be way too fast for me if it's the only choice.
Hopefully the eye tracking AF is a *new* "game changer". They're on a roll with great AF and I hope it continues here!
Other than that, this seems to be a great body! I hope it's not too expensive - well, yes, that is such a relative term! :sneaky:

Anything under 30.2 MP is a child's play thing.
I just kept thinking "please let it be more than 30MP". Now, here we are at 30.1.

But even if it is "just" 30MP, I am sure it will be fabulous. Just not quite as exciting for getting close to birds, but hopefully even better AF and image quality to make up for it.
