Sony recently became a minor investor in Discord and will now integrate the online chat app into PlayStation early next year.
The free voice, video, and text chat app used by tens of millions of users will soon be integrated into your PlayStation gaming experience.
In a recent announcement, Sony Interactive Entertainment has said that they will “bring the Discord and PlayStation experiences closer together on console and mobile, starting early next year.”
The announcement doesn’t give away details about the integration, but we are definitely looking forward to an easier way to access our communities’ chats during shared gaming experiences.
“Empowering players to create communities and enjoy shared gaming experiences is at the heart of what we do, so we are beyond excited to start this journey with one of the world’s most popular communication services.”
To secure the partnership deal, Sony Interactive Entertainment became a minor investor in Discord, as part of its recent Series H round. Earlier this year, Discord was approached by Microsoft with a $10 billion acquisition proposal, but the deal never went through as Discord opted for its independence instead.
Sony has already sold 7.8 million of its latest gaming console, PlayStation 5, and counts over 47.6 million PlayStation Plus subscribers to date, earning a total operating profit of $3.14 billion for its 2020 financial year.
