Basically, a note on the official Microsoft blog talks about the launch of the licensing of the volume version of Office 2021 LTSC (Long-Term Servicing Channel), focused on situations when devices cannot be connected to the network for a long time and receive updates.

So, Office 2021 will be available to users on the same day as the new Windows 11 operating system – October 5, 2021.

Like the previous release, Office 2019, the Office 2021 suite of apps is designed for users who prefer to pay once rather than subscribe to Microsoft 365 with recurring deductions. Microsoft has been heavily promoting Microsoft Office 365 in recent years and has made a subscription distribution model the mainstream of its Office suite.
