Bethesda has confirmed that the PC version of Wolfenstein: Youngblood will release on July 25th, one day earlier than expected, releasing the game on Steam and Bethesda.net before PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. This was later confirmed by the Wolfenstein Twitter account
   
At the time of writing, Wolfenstein: Youngblood's PC release date is still listed as July 26th on both Steam and Bethesda.net, though this is likely to change in the near future. 

One potential reason for this change could be due to QuakeCon 2019, which is due to kick off on July 25th. Releasing the Youngblood early will enable attendees to play the title at the event, enabling some potential co-op action amongst PC players.

In a recent interview, it was confirmed that Wolfenstein: Youngblood would lack support for Nvidia's RTX raytracing at launch. Bethesda and Nvidia plan to enable RTX raytracing with a future patch for the game. At this time it is unknown how Wolfenstein: Youngblood will utilise raytracing.
