With PC, Xbox, and PlayStation support, Discord is poised to be the go-to voice-over-IP service for cross-platform multi-player games, which have started to progress toward ubiquity for the first time over the past couple of years.

That’s great for Discord as a platform and company, of courseand it would be great to see competing services follow so Discord doesn’t have a monopoly on this kind of functionality.

That said, though, even having just one service achieve this is a big boon for cross-play advocates and a sign that the landscape for multiplayer gaming is very different from the previous console generation.
