Does this mean that there will be no Nations League equivalent? Of memory the 2018 WCQ draw took place in late July 2015.

It isn't clear. However, the timeline certainly allows for it. The draw for the finals is not until April 2022.

Assuming a similar timeline to Euro 2020 qualifiers, it could work.

September to November 2020 - Nations League
March to November 2021 - Qualifiers proper
March 2022 - World Cup playoffs
April 2022 - World Cup Finals draw

Up to UEFA. However, I would imagine the playoffs would have to be linked to the qualifying groups proper, rather than to the Nations League. Also, with only 13 places for UEFA in the World Cup, there is a requirement for 9 qualifying groups rather than 10, which is a bit awkward with there now being 55 members, as it probably means one group of seven teams and eight of six. That is very awkward for scheduling as it requires extra matchdays (14 in total for the group of 7, instead of 10 for the groups of 6). That removes the matchdays required for the Nations League. The alternative is 13 groups, with winners only going through, and no playoffs.

I'm not sure what is going to happen, tbh.

I hope it's better organised than the Asian Cup. Farcical organisation. Went to see Palestine vs Australia yesterday, ticketing stewards and police were that slow letting people in to the stadium that most of the fans missed at least 30 minutes. I had just got up to the entrance where my section was, and the police just shut the gates and left about 1000 fans outside the ground. Their excuse was the stadium was full, yet every fan outside had a ticket. Absolute joke.

let’s hope it it expands to 48 teams. Only way we qualify is Rice leaves us.

There is 100% going to be another Nations League from September-November 2020. It’s going to be interesting to see how UEFA will format the qualifying process for the World Cup to facilitate the Nations League schedule.
