Microsoft Office users who refused to switch to a subscription model were very happy to hear last year that Microsoft was planning to launch a new version of the suite without a subscription. Now Microsoft has confirmed it’s definitely launching this year as Office 2021.

Office LTSC is a clear recognition from Microsoft that not all of its business customers are ready to move to the cloud, though. “It’s just a matter of trying to meet customers where they are,” explains Jared Spataro, head of Microsoft 365, in an interview.

Microsoft is now planning to release a preview of Office LTSC in April, with a full release later this year. The consumer Office 2021 variant won’t be available in preview, though. Both of the new Office variants will also ship with OneNote and include 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
