Discord Inc, a very popular video game chat community reportedly wants to go public than to sell itself. The company has been talking to potential buyers and Microsoft regarding this but nothing can be said officially as their discussions are very private.
Discord is best known for its free service that lets gamers communicate by video, voice and text. Its usage mostly increased during the pandemic when people were stuck at home. It has more than 100 million monthly active users. It is a communication tool that gives its users a “place to talk” rather than just being a gamer-centric chat platform.
Microsoft is preparing to acquire Discord for more than $10 billion, as few reports suggest. But representatives of Discord or Microsoft have refused to comment anything regarding this.
Some other reports point out the fact that Discord reached out to Microsoft to gauge interest, and Xbox chief Phil Spencer has been talking to the company. And also Discord has held discussions with Epic Games Inc. and Amazon.com Inc. in the past, but both the company declined to comment anything on this, as of now.
