Incorrect. There is existing working real-time collaboration solution, covering Writer, which is LibreOffice Online. No other development is happening or planned in real-time collaboration area.

But that's the very point of LO online: you can deploy it on your own servers. It's open-source, and free (of course, if you have some serious requirements, you'd need someone to support you).

LO-Online works well with Nextcloud/ownCloud/etc, other integrations exist too. Perhaps this is of help:
