Sony had believed that its PlayStation Network service would have been restored by now but things have been delayed once again.

A company blog post finds Sony saying, “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.”

There had been rumors of yet another security attack to take place against the PlayStation Network over the weekend, but it’s unknown whether Sony’s decision to keep everything offline had anything to do with the threats.

The PlayStation Network has been offline since April 20. This coming Wednesday will mark three weeks since the network originally went down.
