Wow, that's a brief announcement with tantalisingly few details from Canon. It does not look particularly large.
Can't wait to hear the spec list and the price - and even to see how Canon will be positioning this in a road map. The price of the R has dropped quite a bit today, as has the RP.

With the R an then the cheaper RP as a release pair, and now the R5 and a rumoured R6 as another close release pair is this a pattern Canon will be following. and what will Canon do in the High MP arena too? Exciting times for Canon fans.

A canon Link i just got emailed from canon - https://www.canon.co.uk/cameras/eos-r5/ also talks of what seems like a very neat cloud access idea:
Cloud connected. And then some
