Infamous 2 Beta Extended Following PSN Outage

Game developer Sucker Punch Productions has decided to extend the beta of its upcoming ‘Infamous 2’ game in the light of the Sony PlayStation Network outage.

The company released a beta version of the highly awaited gaming title as a preview before its planned June 7 launch.

However, gamer fans were unable to test the beta properly owning to the week-long outage affecting the entire PSN platform.

“We've decided to extend the beta. Once PSN is back up we'll determine by how long, but rest assured: your outcry has been heard,” the company said in a tweet (opens in new tab). Sucker Punch’s Infamous 2 will allow users to form their own game missions and will come multi-player gaming support.

The PSN outage, apart from affecting the developer, has become a cause of immense worry for its 70 million users around the world.

First, the gamers were restricted from playing games on the network then Sony revealed that hackers had managed to steal personal user information like usernames, passwords, emails, and credit card details belonging to millions of PSN users.

The announcement came five days after Sony was forced to pull the plug on the entire PSN platform following an external breach.
