Sony has admitted that PlayStation Network might not be fully restored until May 31.
Speaking during a phone interview with Bloomberg, spokesperson Shigenori Yoshida said the hardware manufacturer was still “uncertain” as to when the online service would be fully back up and running. However, the plan is to have everything restored by the end of the month.
The electronics giant previously planned to have PSN partially restored by the end of last week, though as of today, the service still remains offline.
"When we held the press conference in Japan last week, based on what we knew, we expected to have the services online within a week," explained Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) communications boss, Nick Caplin.
"We were unaware of the extent of the attack on Sony Online Entertainment servers, and we are taking this opportunity to conduct further testing of the incredibly complex system."
