OFFICE FOR MAC
Microsoft says Office for Mac has been delayed due to the company's focus on mobile; however, it announced that the new version will be coming next year.

In the first half of 2015 we will release a public beta for the next version of Office for Mac, and in the second half of 2015 we will make the final release available. Office 365 commercial and consumer subscribers will get the next version at no additional cost, and we will release a perpetual license of Office for Mac in the same timeframe.
