Chat platform Discord was initially launched as a social platform for gamers. It has widened its appeal, but you will still find many Discord servers for gamers. Some servers are relatively generic, covering multiple games and often other types of popular culture. However, you will find many servers on Discord devoted to a single game. Some of these are official game servers run and operated on or behalf of the relevant gaming company. Others are unofficial groups, often full of ardent gamers keen to discuss a game’s latest features and gameplay.
We have previously explained what Discord servers are and how you can use them for business purposes. We have also discussed how you can build a Discord community as a creator.
David Pierce, on Protocol, describes Discord as being “the center of the gaming universe. It has more than 100 million monthly active users, in millions of communities for every game and player imaginable. Its largest servers have millions of members… [Discord is] now undergoing a big pivot: It’s pushing to turn the platform into a communication tool not just for gamers, but for everyone from study groups to sneakerheads to gardening enthusiasts… Discord’s just now realizing it may have stumbled into something like the future of the internet.”
