In a surprising announcement by Sony Interactive Entertainment, PlayStation and Discord has now entered into a partnership with their respective teams already in discussion as to how the platforms will be integrated.
With Discord at Series H of funding, President & Ceo of Sony, Jim Ryan revealed the “minor investment” to further find a collaborative ground towards the gaming and the platform’s reputation as a communication service, especially after speaking to its founders, Jason Citron and Stan Vishnevskiy.
From our very first conversation with co-founders Jason Citron and Stan Vishnevskiy, I was inspired by their lifelong love for gaming and our teams’ shared passion to help bring friends and communities together in new ways. 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.
Last month, it was Microsoft that was in talks with Discord over a billion-dollar acquisition.
It will be early next year until we see the changes Discord and PlayStation will have in store.
