Announcing PlayStation's new Partnership with Discord - SIE Blog - English

Quote
Together, our teams are already hard at work connecting Discord with your social and gaming experience on PlayStation Network. Our goal is to bring the Discord and PlayStation experiences closer together on console and mobile starting early next year, allowing friends, groups, and communities to hang out, have fun, and communicate more easily while playing games together.

To bring these experiences to life for our players, Sony Interactive Entertainment has made a minority investment as part of Discord's Series H round. From our very first conversation with co-founders Jason Citron and Stan Vishnevskiy, I was inspired by their lifelong love for gaming and our teams' shared passion to help bring friends and communities together in new ways.

Small note: Sony specifically made a minority investment.

Crazy how MS was about to buy them and then this happens

Its just a minority stake, integration can happen with other consoles still. Heck its probably best for discord to have integration with xbox and switch

the minority stake is probably just to ensure MS doesn't buy them up and immediately shut down communications on PS.   it would be a spiteful way to fudge up a competitor and exactly the kind of BS MS would do.
