Microsoft in talks to acquire Discord for $10 Billion (not happening now as Discord pulls out of negotiations)


Recommended Posts

Discord is a great one for them to grab so I can see the reasons for this but, I have loved that they have been independent and separate from a specific platform. 😕 Can’t last forever I guess (even though this is not a done deal yet).

As someone who runs a Discord community, it is at the point where needs either to be bought or go public to get a cash influx to build out its back end and team. Discord has a lot of things that need to be fixed.

Current hub bub is that they will go public instead of selling.

My guess is the Discord investors thought going it alone will equal out to a bigger payday than MS’s $10b. Sony partnership helps that reality, especially if they are going to do a first class integration with the PS5.
