We thank you for your patience as we continue to work around the clock to restore our game services. We know this has been a frustrating time for you and appreciate your understanding as we work to confirm the security of our network.

In light of the recent outage of Sony Online Entertainment's game services due to April's cyber-attack, we are committed to compensating our loyal player base for the inconvenience caused by the data breach and lost game time while we improve our security measures.

We are currently in the process of an extensive upgrade to our network to further protect your information from future attacks. It will likely be at least a few more days before we restore our services, and when we come back online, here is what you can expect for each of our game services.

In light of this update, we are cancelling raids for the weekend, and will revisit the issue on Monday, provided there is new information available.    Also, for our US residents, Sony is providing identity theft protection (IRONIC considering the worst security breaches took place OUTSIDE the US.).  For more information about that program, click here.
