Microsoft reportedly wants to buy Discord for more than $10B


Microsoft is shopping again and this time it wants to buy Discord, the communication platform for gamers.

This morning, Bloomberg reported that the tech giant is keen to acquire the app for more than $ 10 billion – a hefty sum. In December, Discord raised $ 100 million for a valuation of $ 7 billion, so it wouldn’t be surprising if the sale price was over $ 10 billion.

On Monday, VentureBeat reported that Discord is exploring several options, including a sell.

But a Microsoft acquisition isn’t the only possibility on the horizon for Discord. Bloomberg’s report also noted that it may even go public. Gaming-related stocks are all the rage right now, and the communications platform could be inspired by the stellar IPO of the Roblox gaming platform.
