Sony has announced that maintenance is scheduled to take place next week for approximately 2 hours. The PlayStation Network and associated services will be unavailable between 04:30 GMT to 06:30 GMT on October 14th 2015. In North America, this maintenance window falls on October 13th 2015, between 21:30 PDT to October 13, 23:30 PDT.
As usual, all PlayStation Network services will be unavailable during the maintenance window, and may extend beyond the initial 2 hours stated to allow for additional testing.
A message from Sony on the maintenance reads as follows:
We strive to ensure that PlayStation™Network services are available at all times, but occasionally we must take PlayStation™Network offline to perform essential maintenance and implement feature enhancements. We are working hard to reduce the duration of each maintenance.
