Video game publisher Sony says that the planned maintenance for the PlayStation Network service is taking longer than initially expected and that service should be resumed for all users to the early hours of the morning, using clocks set to Pacific Standard Time.

The official Twitter message reads: “PSN Maintenance update: Though estimated to end at 8pm PT tonight, maintenance has been extended to tomorrow AM. Updates as we get them.”

The company has not given any reason for the delay.

It’s also not clear why Sony scheduled the maintenance in the first place, but it might have something to do with the updates introduced to the PlayStation Store.

The PlayStation 3 might also get a new firmware update in the coming weeks and Sony might also be getting its infrastructure ready for the multiplayer-enabled God of War: Ascension.
