Fans soon to communicate using integrated Discord in PS5

In a recent tweet by insider Tom Henderson, it was disclosed that PlayStation 5 might soon be enabling a Discord chatting system for fans to enjoy. He tweeted, “Sony to Integrate Discord Voice Chat in ‘The Coming Months.'”

This is also due to the fact that both companies had a deal last year, where they announced that they will form a partnership. The partnership was supposed to start integrating early this year, but due to many transitional reasons, it suffered a delay.

But ever since the PlayStation 5 price increase gaffe, Sony has been making every effort to give fans more reasons to continue with them. Including the most recent Discord integrated chatting system and new DualSense Edge controllers.
