It was confirmed back in November that the company was working on Office for both of these platforms and it was expected that release will take place in early 2013. The leaked roadmap also reveals what Office updates will be coming later this year.

It reveals that Microsoft is developing ‘Metro-Style’ versions of OneNote, Excel, PowerPoint and Work. This update is going to be rolled out this year. All of these four apps will be made more touch-centric and they’re going to be compatible with Windows 8 and Windows RT, they’ll supplement the desktop versions of these apps, not replace them. April 2014 will bring a new version of Mac Office as well as an update of Office for Windows Phone, Office RT has also been listed as a milestone for the same month in this leaked roadmap.
