Firstly, I came across an hour old PC World article which just nonchalantly dropped this massive bomb in its preview article for Office 2013 for Windows What. The. ****. Does this mean that we will see Office for Mac 2013 in Q4 2012? Sadly, it seems someone at PC World got a little over excited. So there we have it. We're getting an update to Office for Mac 2011 in Q4 2012, and given that it appears to port some notable features from Office 2013, I think it's not unreasonable to hope that retina compatibility is also a possibility.
