If you were following the news back in March, it was reported that Microsoft was in advanced talks to acquire the group-chat platform Discord, but now The Wall Street Journal is reporting that those talks have ended.
The outlet states that according to its sources, Discord fielded interest from at least three companies about a potential acquisition, but the talks "ended without a deal, though it is possible they could be rekindled in the future."
"Discord fielded interest from at least three companies about a deal, some of the people said. They said Discord is performing well and prefers to stay independent at this time."
Originally, it was believed that Microsoft's offer was in excess of $10 billion, valuing it even higher than the recent acquisition of Bethesda, and that a deal could have been completed this month. Looks like that won't be the case now!
