PSO2 Service Reopens

The DDoS attacks are coming in at a much lower rate. Sega has reopened PSO2 service as of June 27th 16:30 JST. Unfortunately, there are still other services that need to be reopened, and it will take some time to complete this task. 

  • They will need some more time in addressing PSO2es, they'll announce at a later time when they'll relaunch service for PSO2es.
  • AC purchases will be suspended for a while. They'll announce at a later time when AC can be purchased again.

Sega will announce the rescheduling of the 6/26 update after examining the stability of the servers. The countermeasures they now have in place may cause, under specific environments, communication delays and connection difficulties. In regards to this, they plan to make improvements while examining the stability of the service.

Sega will post another followup report on Saturday, June 28 @ 19:00 JST.

At this time, the current services have been suspended:
