In this post we will discuss how we can get SharePoint 2016 Project templates in visual studio 2015. Recently after installing SharePoint 2016 and Visual Studio 2015 in my laptop, when I open visual studio, I can see only project types for SharePoint 2013, SharePoint 2010. I do not see any project type for SharePoint 2016.

Download Microsoft Office Developer Tools Preview for Visual Studio 2015

Once the installation over, if you will open visual studio 2015, you can see project templates related to SharePoint 2016.
Hope this will be helpful.
