There is a backlog at NVC due to the closure of consulates around the world.  Once a consulate informs NVC of available dates, NVC will schedule interviews.....beginning at the front of the queue for that consulate.

She’s  certainly caught up in the backlog. If her case was approved in May, that was a couple of months after the embassies closed for Covid, so they first need to clear the backlog of people who were already scheduled and had their interviews cancelled, and then they still need to get round to the people that were in front of your wife in the line that were approved but not yet scheduled. So maybe two months of rescheduling plus two months of people in front of your wife (mid March to mid May), plus they are likely operating at reduced capacity due to Covid concerns. Embassy has been open a little over 2 months, you probably have at least another 2 months to go given that backlog and timing of your wife’s approval, maybe more? (Some embassies were also giving time preference to student visas (time sensitive for college year starts) and later in September for the DV visas after the ruling against the state department, possibly leading to further delays for non time sensitive categories.)


 

As of August 31, 2020, the United States Embassy in Skopje is resuming certain immigrant and nonimmigrant visa services, including: IR1/CR1, IR2/CR2 immigrant visas, and F (student), M, J (certain categories allowed by COVID-19 Presidential Proclamations). E, I, O, and P nonimmigrant visas may also be processed once student and exchange visitor visa processing has been completed.  While the U.S. Embassy in Skopje aims to process cases as soon as practicable, there is likely to be increased wait times for completing such services due to substantial backlogs.  The MRV fee is valid and may be used to schedule an interview appointment in the country where it was purchased within one year of the date of payment. If you have an urgent matter and need to travel immediately, please follow the guidance provided at  https://ais.usvisa-info.com/en-mk/niv to request an emergency appointment.

For comparison, the US embassy in Ukraine opened in June for IR1/CR1 visa processing.  Our interview was scheduled in August.

 

With the Skopje embassy opened in September (Aug 31 is basically September), I would expect at least a couple of months before your case gets scheduled.
