Today we reached an important milestone in the development of the new Office.
Moments ago, the Office engineering team signed off on the Release to Manufacturing (RTM) build. This milestone means the coding and testing phase of the project is complete and we are now focused on releasing the new Office via multiple distribution channels to our consumer and business customers.
This is the most ambitious release of Office we've ever done. It spans the full family of Office applications, servers and cloud services. The new Office has a fresh, touch friendly design that works beautifully on Windows 8 and unlocks modern scenarios in social, reading, note-taking, meetings and communications. We are proud to achieve this milestone and are eager to deliver this exciting release to our customers.
General availability is planned for the first quarter of 2013. Starting October 19, customers purchasing Office 2010 from local retailers or resellers will receive the new Office for free upon availability. Customers will also see a preview version of the new Office on Windows RT devices, beginning with the Windows 8 launch on October 26.
Additionally, we have a number of programs that provide business customers with early access so they can begin testing, piloting and adopting Office within their organizations:
Please stay tuned for more specifics on general availability dates and other Office launch news. In the meantime, if you'd like to give the pre-release version a try, you can visit office.com/preview.
Thank you to the millions of people who have been testing early releases of the new Office. We are grateful for your support. Your invaluable feedback has helped us make the new Office the best Office ever.

Great! By "Starting October 19, customers purchasing Office 2010 from local retailers or resellers will receive the new Office for free upon availability.", you mean customers will receive a one-year free subscription to the service?
We wanted to let all of our blog readers know that the engineering team has signed off on the Release
Yes!!!!! The New Microsoft Project reaches RTM! and yes that means the same for the rest of Office: Office
Today Microsoft reached RTM status of the new Office Suite that includes Exchange, Lync & Sharepoint
Looking forward to use the final version of office 2013.
Why not release now? I don't understand the wait.
Oh and this site won't let me login with Facebook on metro IE10. Dumb.
Will Office 2013 finally be avaiable to students with dreamspark premieum. It would be great if students finally had access to the #1 software suite for students for free.
We are very excited to announce the Microsoft Office Division team has released to manufacturing Office
Can't wait to show up in TechNet, this is why I am holding up on Windows 8 still.
That jsut looks like its gonna be good man!

I don't think so. I think that there is going to be a dual licensing model. Both a purchase in a box (or download) for a onetime fee, and a subscription service. Adobe is doing this now with Creative Suite / Creative cloud. This gives people the option to do what works for them.
Congrats to the team on a huge undertaking. The work incorporating the Excel Data Model and Power View into the world favorite BI client is top notch. Presenter view in PowerPoint has been a great new feature to keep presentations going smooth and the new Cloud App Model and Content By Search functionality in SharePoint will bring more value without coding to our favorite collaboration platform. Can't wait to see the polish you've put in since the Preview. Great work team!
just wondering if servicing has been updated in office as it was in windows 8 to allow updates to be released sooner, without waiting for service packs.
