Microsoft will return to the Super Bowl following its first tear-jerker spot that aired during last year's game.

The tech giant said it will run one 60-second ad during Super Bowl XLIX, which will air on NBC on Feb. 1.

Microsoft bowed its first Super Bowl commercial during the 2014 game with a spot featuring former NFL player Steve Gleason, battling Lou Gehrig's disease and using a Surface Pro tablet with eye-tracking technology to speak.

Microsoft has not released any details about this year's commercial.

Microsoft's Xbox and Surface are NFL sponsors and Bing is a partner of the Seattle Seahawks, who will face off in the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots.
