Sony has planned PlayStation Network maintenance for Monday, 17th November 2014, starting at 6:00 PM. The maintenance will last for approximately 6 hours, finishing at midnight, and coincidently at the same time as GTA V’s midnight launch.
If the maintenance overruns, it will affect those trying to play GTA V online on launch day. If you’ve pre-ordered the digital edition, be sure to pre-load the game onto your console before the maintenance window, or you won’t be able to download it until after the maintenance.
Sony have also mentioned that there “may be some additional downtime after the maintenance period for testing purposes”, which could affect the GTA V gamers.
