PlayStation Network, Qriocity May Not Return By June

Japanese gaming giant Sony has confirmed that its PlayStation Network and Qriocity services will not be back online before the end of this month.

The company had previously said that the services will would gradually come back online in the next few days, but now a Sony spokesperson has told Bloomberg (opens in new tab)that the company remains uncertain about when the services will come back online.

Sony’s entire system had gone for a revamp after the company discovered that hackers had broken into its servers and stolen valuable personal and financial user information.

According to a blog post made by Sony on May 6, the company is extensively testing the security of the new network infrastructure and would inform the public about the launch date after a while. The company failed to pin-point a specific date.

“We’re still working to confirm the security of the network infrastructure, as well as working with a variety of outside entities to confirm with them of the security of the system,” Sony said

“Verifying the system security is vital for the process of restoration. Additional comprehensive system checks and testing are still required, and we must complete that process before bringing the systems online.”
