Microsoft announce that a commercial preview of Office LTSC, the next perpetual release of Office, will be available in April 2021.
This release of Office will align with Windows 10 LTSC for use in specific, limited scenarios, and will be supported for five years. It will be released in the second half of 2021 and there will be a 10% price increase. Microsoft confirm that there will be another release in the future too.
There are also plans to release Office 2021 for personal and small business users later in the year, and there are no plans for a price increase for these products.
