Discord reportedly dismisses Microsoft deal

Discord is ending talks to sell itself to Microsoft or other companies, the Wall Street Journal reports. The popular online chat app was reportedly in talks to sell to Microsoft in March, for a price that valued Discord at over $10 billion.

The Wall Street Journal writes that Discord was in talks with at least three other companies, but has decided to stay independent because it’s “doing well.” Discord has around 140 million monthly users and earned about $130 million in revenue in 2020, but still isn’t profitable, according to WSJ.
