Sony A7R4 threat for Canon (and Nikon) ?

https://www.dpreview.com/news/7747501993/sony-introduces-a7r-iv

Today, Sony announced the new A7R4 with 61MP (why so many, the megapixel race is presumably not over yet ?), but some nice features, like (finally !) 5GHz wifi, very high res 5.76 MP viewfinder (should be about 2000x2880), but also lacking 4K 60fps.

And pixel shift allows making 244MP photos (who needs it ??).

Anyway, Sony is absolutely king in sensor technology and Canon is way behind, such as a 3 year old sensor in the EOS R(P) (from the 2016 5Mk4 and 6Mk2 respectively).

I hope the rumored EOS R Pro (fictional name by me) with 60+MP which would be the successor of the 1DX uses a new sensor, maybe the same as the A7R4 ? Same would apply to the Nikon Z8 and Z9 ? But these are just thoughts.

And Sony is now also threatening the lens king Canon with their new 400mm f/2.8 and 200-600 and some other new lenses rivaling the top end EF and RF lenses.

What are your thoughts ?
