In light of the current unveiling of the highly anticipated Windows 10, Microsoft also announced the release date of the new "touch-centric versions" of its Office apps.
Microsoft's Office general manager, Julia White, posted an update on the MS Office blog saying that that the next-gen Microsoft Office 2016 is slated to be made available in the later part of 2015.
"Simultaneously, we are hard at work on the next release of the Office desktop suite that will be called Office 2016. (Unexpected, I know!) We will have more to share on Office 2016 in the coming months, but this suite will remain the comprehensive Office experience you're long familiar with, best suited for a PC with keyboard and mouse. We have compelling new experiences coming as part of this Office suite–stay tuned to the Office Blog for more details. We expect to make Office 2016 generally available in the second half of 2015," White said. more >>
