Microsoft may buy Discord — here’s what it means for gamers


Bloomberg recently reported that Microsoft may be interested in buying gaming-focused chat service Discord for a $10 billion. However, Microsoft is not the only company interested, as both Amazon and Epic Games have allegedly discussed a Discord acquisition before. Discord’s sale to Microsoft isn’t guaranteed, however, as the popular chat service could also launch as a public company on the stock market. 

In many ways, Microsoft buying Discord would make sense. Many people play games on both Windows PCs and Xbox consoles, so adding Discord to the Microsoft family would be logical. The companies have also worked together previously, offering Nitro subscribers a free three-month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription as an incentive.
