Microsoft is negotiating the purchase of Discord for over $ 10 billion
The matter is still not settled, and more companies are to be interested in acquiring the communicator.
Discord has taken the place of TeamSpeak or Ventrilo among players, becoming a universal communication tool – for some also at work. In less than six years, the number of accounts opened has exceeded a quarter of a billion, and in recent months, the application has been used by over 140 million people monthly. As you can imagine, the pandemic (and the associated popularity of Among Us) only helped those results – in December, the company valued at $ 7 billion.
According to the latest information, Discord will probably change the owner soon. According to GamesBeat sources, the company has been “checking the possibility of selling due to the interest of many parties” for some time. In one case, negotiations are expected to be at an advanced stage and the potential deal is reportedly over $ 10 billion.
Bloomberg also informed about the case, adding that the company is also considering entering the stock exchange. Both portals indicate Microsoft as a company primarily interested in the acquisition of Discord, but neither party has published any comment on this matter yet.
