Despite not providing details on when the PlayStation Network will return, Sony is sticking with a plan to “fully” restore the service by May 31, Bloomberg reports.

Citing statements from a Sony spokesperson based in Tokyo, Bloomberg says the company is still unsure when PSN will return, but has not ruled out a plan to completely resurrect the network as well as its Qriocity music service by the end of the month.

On May 1, Sony revealed it would launch a “phased restoration” of PSN last week, bringing back features such as the ability to play games online, access to PlayStation Home and access to friends lists.

However, the company announced it would postpone the return of PSN to conduct more internal testing.

PSN has been down since April 20, when Sony took the service online following a massive data breach.
