Microsoft is formally launching two new forms of Office this year: Office 2021 for individual clients and Office LTSC (Long Term Servicing Channel) for business purposes.
Office 2021 will be an update to Office 2019 and will be accessible at a one-time cost without requiring a Microsoft 365 membership. Microsoft doesn’t have any designs to build the expense, which implies you can anticipate that the pricing should be like Office 2019.

The declaration of the new version of Office demonstrates that Microsoft isn’t simply focusing in on Microsoft 365, its cloud-based contribution. That bodes well since numerous businesses don’t have the assets to move to the cloud totally.
Jared Spataro, head of Microsoft 365, said in a meeting with The Verge, “It’s just a matter of trying to meet customers where they are. We certainly have a lot of customers that have moved to the cloud over the last 10 months, that’s happened en masse really. At the same time, we definitely have customers who have specific scenarios where they don’t feel like they can move to the cloud.”
