Microsoft has confirmed that it does not plan to release Office 2013 for OS X but instead will release an update to Office for Mac 2011, reports The Verge.

Microsoft confirmed to us that there is no Office for Mac 2013 release planned. "We haven't announced the next release of Office for Mac," says a Microsoft spokesperson. Office 2013, available for Windows 7 and Windows 8 PCs, will include support for a new streaming version of Office with a focus on cloud features. Microsoft last rolled out a Service Pack 2 update to its Office for Mac 2011 software in April -- patching some previous Outlook issues. Office 2013 and the Office for Mac 2011 update are both expected to ship early next year.

The update will bring support for SkyDrive storage and Office 365 allowing them to save and retrieve documents. Office for Mac licenses will count towards an Office 365 Home Premium subscription.
