The Discord social service is particularly popular among gamers. That made it interesting for Microsoft too, but discussions about a possible purchase are said to have now been discontinued.
We reported some time ago that Microsoft is said to have started talks to acquire Discord. About a month later, the topic doesn’t seem to be any more. According to a new report, Discord should no longer have any interest in being bought out.
Like the renowned one Wall Street Journal announces, Discord will not be sold – although the company apparently had several lucrative offers at the same time. This also includes the purchase offer from Microsoft discussed at the beginning. Corresponding discussions have been put on hold for the moment, but could possibly be resumed at some point in the future. For the moment, however, selling is not an issue.
According to the Wall Street Journal
Discord currently has more than 140 million monthly active users.
