Sony Interactive Entertainment president and CEO Jim Ryan mentioned the team is looking for new ways to enable players around the world to connect with one another, form new friendships and communities, and share fun experiences and lasting memories.
The 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.
Sony Interactive Entertainment has made a minority investment as part of Discord’s Series H round. The conversation with co-founders Jason Citron and Stan Vishnevskiy, which inspired by their lifelong love for gaming and our teams’ shared passion to help bring friends and communities together in new ways. Empowering players to create communities and enjoy shared gaming experiences is at the heart of what we do, so we are beyond excited to start this journey with one of the world’s most popular communication services.
