“Starting early next year, our mission is to put the Discord and PlayStation interactions closer together on console and smartphone, encouraging families, clubs, and communities to hang out, have fun, and connect more effectively when playing games together,” said Jim Ryan, President, and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment.
The development comes just months after the email behemoth was said to be in negotiations with Microsoft to buy it for $10 billion. According to a WSJ story from last month, Discord has suspended talks with Microsoft and is now considering an IPO. Discord is a popular voice chat app for gamers, with over 140 million monthly users.
