Discord is finally making its way to PS4 & PS5, thanks to a new partnership between the companies.
PlayStation Network already has its own party chat system. However, this hasn’t stopped players asking for the popular gaming communication service Discord from coming to PS4 and PS5.
Now, a new announcement has revealed that Discord is finally coming to PlayStation platforms in the future.
Discord Integration With PSN
Yesterday, President & CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment Jim Ryan announced a new partnership between PlayStation and Discord. This follows SIE’s minority investment in Discord as well as Ryan’s announcement that “PS5 will have more exclusives than ever before”.
“We’re excited to announce a new partnership with Discord, the communication service popularized by gamers and used by more than 140 million people every month around the world.”Jim Ryan
Despite the news dropping just now, players will still have a while to wait for Discord to arrive on PlayStation. The service will be integrated into PSN “early next year”.
Discord PS4 & PS5 Features
None of the features for the PlayStation versions of Discord have been announced yet. However, players can assume that cross-party chat with PC players and being able to join communities for different games will be the main draws of Discord on PlayStation.
Considering how many PS5s have sold so far, this partnership will be huge for the number of Discord users too.
