PlayStation invests in Discord and plans integration with PSN in 2022
Sony is planning to integrate Discord into PlayStation Network starting in early 2022. In a blog post today, Sony Interactive Entertainment boss Jim Ryan explained that this connection will enable some form of communication between users on PSN and the Discord app on PC and mobile. “Together, our teams are already hard at work connecting Discord with your social and gaming experience on PlayStation Network,” reads Ryan’s statement. So you can see what someone is playing on Xbox through Discord, but they cannot directly communicate through Xbox Live. That makes the Sony deal important because Discord could solve a problem with cross-platform communication as more games enable people on PlayStation, Xbox, PC, and mobile to play with one another.
