Microsoft Corp. is in talks to acquire Discord Inc., a video-game chat community, for more than $10 billion, according to people familiar with the matter.
Discord is my main communication-app nowadays. Of all the companies willing to buy them, I think Microsoft is the one least likely to fuck it up. The other two were Amazon and Epic. And I wouldn't trust them.
From Big Revolution:
So, the next question is ‘would Microsoft be a good home for Discord?’ Considering that Facebook would probably just kill it and move the users over to Facebook Groups, Google would support it for a year and then kill it, and Amazon would probably keep it going forever with a skeleton staff just so no-one else could own it (think about what it’s done to Goodreads), Microsoft seems like the best bet.
