After all that talk of a possible Microsoft acquisition, and then that being shot-down, it seems Discord really will continue solo while pulling in more investors. Since Discord is hugely popular, even for us we have our own Discord Server, it's important to know who might be controlling it and making decisions. At least for now though, Discord still make their own.
Just announced yesterday is that Sony Interactive Entertainment has pumped some money into Discord, although no amounts were disclosed Sony said it was a "minority investment". Discord themselves did not put out any announcement, other than their official Twitter account saying it was "pog".
This comes as part of Discord's Series H round of funding. There's a lot of series of funding to go through, and it's a bit of a minefield to navigate but the gist of it is companies go through many letters (rounds) of funding until ready for possible acquisitions or an initial public offering (IPO).
What does all this mean for the PC/Linux version? Thankfully, nothing. No changes are planned other than some new integration on PlayStation platforms.
