It’s official: Sony is investing in Discord. The company has purchased a minority stake in the chat service, with the teams across Sony and Discord working to integrate Discord with PlayStation “closer together on console and mobile starting early next year,” Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan announced today in a statement.

The partnership will enable friends to “hang out, have fun, and communicate more easily while playing games together” – presumably by allowing Discord interactions on PlayStation consoles, though the announcement didn’t clarify how integrated the chat service would become. Interestingly enough, this news comes just a couple of weeks after the news broke that Microsoft attempted to buy Discord for several billion dollars, but that eventually negotiations fell through.
