I think it’s just logic to expect that Canon will continuously release RF mount versions of most of the lenses currently existing for the EF mount. RF mount macro lenses for sure too.
Two Canon patent applications in Japan (2020-60660A and 2020-60661A, spotted by Hi Lows Note), show that Canon R&D departments are working on such lenses, and we think here too we have a patent application that might hit the market sooner or later. Optical formulas for RF mountmacro lenses with focal lengths of 90mm, 100mm and 180mm, all f/2.8, are discussed in the patent applications.
More Canon patent applications are listed here. Some particularly interesting patent applications we think might get into production are these:

Venus Optics announce pricing and availability of Laowa 65mm f/2.8 2X macro lens, a compact macro lens with 2:1 magnification and invisible CA
Anhui China, Jan 24, 2020 – Venus Optics, the Chinese camera lenses manufacturer endeavoring in crafting unique manual lenses that no two alike, unveil the pricing and availability of the highlighted product in 2020: Laowa 65mm f/2.8 2X macro APO. It is the first macro lens that Venus Optics specially design for mirrorless cameras with APS-C sensors. Looking at market offerings which can focus up to 1:1 at most, the Laowa macro lens is the only APS-C mirrorless lens in the market that is capable of achieving a 2:1 magnification. Despite its unique specifications and features, Venus Optics has decided to keep the lens reasonably affordable at US $399 (ex-VAT) only. Pricing varies in different countries. It comes with Fuji X, Sony E & EOS-M mounts.
