Update: We’ve just discovered otherwise: It appears that Office for 2011 may actually be launching on the 26th, not the 27th.

In a report on Microsoft’s Office 2011’s impending launch, Mac Generation (English translation), noted that the software will supposedly launch on October 27th. Microsoft Office 2011 will be launching in over 100 countries in both Student and Business/Home editions. Microsoft’s next generation productivity suite offers an updated user interface, new collaboration tools, better Windows compatibility, new themes and many other features.

Just yesterday we reported on new Office 2011 details and a Microsoft-made video detailing new information. When the software launches it will be available in $99 (academic license), $119, and $199 configurations. These prices depend on whether you purchase the Business/Home or Student edition. In terms of Mac Generation’s track record, they successfully reported Safari 5’s features and its WWDC launch.
