Shortly after the improbable takeover of the Evolution Championship Series (EVO), Sony continues to surprise players by announcing a collaboration with the communications juggernaut: Discord.
A few hours ago the official site of SIE (Sony Interactive Entertainment) revealed to us, through its CEO Jim Ryan, that Playstation and Discord had just joined forces. By working hand in hand with a communication giant used by more than 140 million people every month, Sony intends to simplify communication for all users of the Playstation 5 and the Playstation Network. Indeed, as Jim Ryan points out, shortly after the first PS5 software update, the two companies are already working together to quickly make Discord accessible on the brand’s consoles and mobiles.
“Together, our teams are already working hard to connect Discord to your social and gaming experience on PlayStation Network. Our goal is to bring the Discord and PlayStation experiences on console and mobile closer together starting early next year, allowing friends, groups and communities to come together to have fun and communicate more easily while playing games. games together.“- Jim Ryan
Just a few days after the last PS5 and Playstation App update, this announcement comes at the right time for all the aficionados of the Japanese firm. Of course, for the moment, it is still too early to know concretely in what form this collaboration will be illustrated, which should not bear fruit. before the start of 2022. However, Sony’s minority investment in Discord’s H series shows just how committed the two companies are to working together effectively. It only remains for us to take our troubles patiently.
