Sony working on Discord integration for PlayStation

If you want to team up with friends on both PlayStation and PC, there’s good news for you, as Sony has announced a partnership with Discord to put the voice chat system on PlayStation Network.

In a blog post, Sony Interactive Entertainment president Jim Ryan announced that Sony is already working on integrating the service into PlayStation Network, and plans on bringing “the Discord and PlayStation experiences closer together on console and mobile starting early next year”. Sony has also made a minority investment as part of Discord’s Series H funding round. The post is a little vague on exactly what this integration will look like, but it still seems positive for those wanting an easier way to communicate when using cross-play.

The news is particularly interesting given the recent reports of talks between Discord and Microsoft over a potential acquisition.

A later report claimed Discord had decided to turn down the offer, but might still accept Microsoft’s bid in the future.
