Over the years, Discord has become a remarkable community tool for gamers everywhere, with millions joining in to chat rooms and interacting with one another. But Sony’s ready to take its services to the next level, with a mega-deal just announced for its PlayStation platforms, namely PS5.
The companies recently announced a new partnership, one in which Sony has invested a small amount into the mega-million-making community. With it, the companies hold to integrate
their services into a focused chat app that will work alongside Sony’s social tools on the PlayStation platforms. This comes after Microsoft tried – and failed – to acquire the community service to make as part of its Xbox fold.
While there’s not a specific launch date, the companies noted that they intend to “bring the Discord and PlayStation experiences closer together on console and mobile starting early next year,” with early 2022 being the likely target.
This could mark a huge leap forward for Sony’s chat features on the PS5, allowing those to log in to Discord and talk with players that way. This could open the door for Sony’s communities in general, making quantum leaps forward as a result.
We’ll see what happens in the months ahead, but congrats to Sony and Discord on the remarkable deal!
