Like the title says. When will they be added, which will be first, do they have anyone working on them, and many more questions surrounding those languages(Example: Lithuanian and Latvian). I would really enjoy these courses and was just wondering. Is there something that has been posted before and Duolingo talked about the subject?

You can see which courses are being worked on here : https://incubator.duolingo.com/

If a language is not in there then only Duolingo knows when they or even if they plan to add it however there is a guide on how to suggest and support languages here : https://www.duolingo.com/comment/15014194

I hope so! I'm part Latvian and I would love to learn the language. Whenever I've been there, it seemed really cool!

I had a couple of days in Riga this spring and really loved it, and the way the Latvian language looked; I've also heard that Lithuanian may have unique ties to Proto-Indo-European, so it's considered pretty important linguistically. It would be cool to learn either!

I wish I could travel around because that would really help so much with my learning but yea Lithuanian is an old one taking words from Latin and Sanskrit I think.

Lithuanian is the most archaic Indo-European language (at least that is still spoken) , so it would be neat to see it here. Latvian would be good too.
