Sony Plans to Integrate Discord into PlayStation
“Our goal is to bring the Discord and PlayStation experiences closer together on console and mobile starting early next year, allowing friends, groups, and communities to hang out, have fun, and communicate more easily while playing games together,” Jim Ryan, Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO said in a statement.
While this is not the first time Discord is partnering with the console manufacturer, we can expect a deeper integration rather than just a rich presence indicator. Ryan said developers are already working on the PlayStation network to connect Discord with the social and gaming experience.
The move comes months after the messaging giant reportedly negotiated with Microsoft in a $ 10 billion takeover deal. However, according to a WSJ report from last month, Discord has stopped discussions with Microsoft and will go for an IPO. With over 140 million monthly users, Discord is a popular voice chat app among gamers.
The said integration on the PlayStation network should facilitate gamers to communicate with other players, especially on cross-platform games such as Apex Legends. Sony says that we can expect more information on this partnership in the coming months. We’ll have to wait to see how this partnership shapes the future of the PlayStation Network on consoles and mobiles.
