SOFTWARE HOUSE Microsoft has told the world that it will release Office 2013 tomorrow, 29 January.

Both a new Office 365 holding webpage and a tweet from the Microsoft Office Twitter account have confirmed that Microsoft Office 2013 will be launched in New York tomorrow.

Microsoft pointed to a first quarter release of Office 2013 following its release to PC OEMS in October last year. It also shipped its Microsoft Surface tablet with Office 2013, along with a handful of other Windows 8 devices, suggesting that its productivity suite couldn't be too far behind.

Microsoft claims that Office 2013 is the most "ambitious" version of the productivity suite yet, telling The INQUIRER last year, "[It] has a fresh, touch friendly design that works beautifully on Windows 8 and unlocks modern scenarios in social, reading, note-taking, meetings and communications."

From tomorrow, it's thought that users who don't have Microsoft's latest Office suite will be able to download it for themselves. UK pricing for Microsoft Office 2013 has yet to be announced, but we hope to find out more tomorrow.

Microsoft has yet to respond to our request for comment. µ
