Microsoft will officialy launch the final version of Office 2016 on September 22nd according to the German site Winfuture.
The forthcoming launch will cover home and professional users, with a SKU for enterprise users coming at a later date.
"On September 22, 2015, we'll release Office 2016 -- with updates for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Skype for Business, Project, Visio, Access, and Publisher," Microsoft purportedly stated in a leaked launch note. "The innovation wave continues in Q2 with the release of E5 and Skype for Business, and on-premise servers will follow."
Office 2016 will tap into the cloud to offer users real-time co-authoring capabilities, an important feature upgrade as cloud-based alternatives like Google Docs continue to improve.
