Microsoft has had a whole lot of news for us of late, what with their futuristic tech on the way, the unified platform that is Windows 10 and a couple of other innovations besides. But wait, there’s more.

Microsoft has also announced that Office 2016 is on the way and it’ll make its first appearance on the market this year. It’s been designed to work with Windows 10 specifically and since Windows 10 is looking pretty darned tasty, we can’t say we’re sad about that.

According to Microsoft, Office 2016 “…offers touch-optimized versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook that work great on small screen devices like your phone and tablet—all the way up to the Microsoft Surface Hub. They are designed from the ground up to run on Windows 10, built for touch and offer the unmistakable Office experience you know and love. As “universal” Office apps, they truly are the same app across device size, providing a consistent way for independent software vendors and developers to extend and integrate with Office apps.”

There’s no firm release date for it yet but we can expect it in the second half of 2015. So now we have something to look forward to.
