Sony Interactive Entertainment has invested a minority stake in the popular communication app Discord. The companies plan to bring the Discord and PlayStation experiences closer together on console and mobile starting early next year.
Sony didn’t detail much about what it plans to do with Discord. The popular messaging app boasts more than 100 million active monthly users. While PlayStation has its own dedicated voice chat.
Some kind of integration whether that’s a fully-fledged Discord on PlayStation. OR simply the ability to use the app’s voice chat across different platforms could be a big help toward bridging the crossplay gap.
