Sony has officially invested in Discord. Sources suggest that it holds a minority stake in the chat service. Both the companies are possibly working on integrating PlayStation with the chat service. Hopefully, this could be expected by next year.
Sony Collaborates with Discord
This new partnership between Sony and Discord will be implemented by 2022. Players will be able to gave more fun, chat with their friends, and play together. However, it is not yet clarified how integrated the chat service would be. It will presumably attract new PlayStation customers. Surprisingly, this news came a week after Microsoft hinted at collaborating with Discord. Discord and Sony are going to be combined very soon. It is definitely good news for all PlayStation lovers out there. Discord receives minority stake investment from Sony.
What to Expect from the Collaboration?
A lot has not been revealed for now either by Sony or by Discord. We will have to wait until 2022 for more clarification. Sources hint that PS5 users might get the cross-platform chat and messaging feature via Discord. However, Sony is bringing more and more PC games. This makes sense that it is expanding its business. Maybe PC users can also take advantage of the new chat feature in the near future. Apart from PlayStation and PC, Xbox users might also get the chat feature as time goes on. We can just wait and see what happens or how Sony will figure out the whole scenario. Nothing can be predicted until 2022.

The chat service can be accessed via mobiles, computers, laptops, etc. It also allows features such as real-time voice calls and video calls. With Sony introducing Discord in its devices, its market will boost up. The gaming industry thrived a lot during the pandemic. Additionally, this allowed companies to invest in their game developers even more. More details on this new integration between the two companies are awaited.
