Microsoft, Other Bidders Pursue An Acquisition Of Discord As The App’s Founders Near Billionaire Status
It's not just Microsoft that's interested. There are several suitors bent on winning Discord, which hasn’t decided whether or not to sell itself.
In a bid that could top $10billion, Microsoft have launched talks to acquire the gamers' chat platform from its' owners, who are themselves already on the verge of becoming billionaires from the success of their chat platform. Other bidders are also said to be in on the actions, and Discord themselves have not ruled out the prospect of an IPO to go public. It's a chance for the company that acquires them to gain substantial ground in the chat game and the esports game as Discord has an estimated 100million users and is used for all sorts of purposes. This will be an interesting development, if they even accept an acquisition, but there's plenty to keep tabs on over the coming weeks and months!
