If you dived into NBA 2K24 from the get-go, it is likely that you have already come face to face with a few unable to connect to server errors, which can in some cases make the game unplayable. But is it possible to fix the Unable to Connect to 2K errors in NBA 2K24? And if so, how?

How to Fix the Problem With Your Connection Errors in NBA 2K24

As 90% of the Unable to Connect to 2K errors in NBA 2K24, including the 4b538e50 one, are caused by instabilities between you and the game’s servers, you will be able to fix them, in most cases, by doing one of the following:

  • Restarting your modem and/or device
  • Turning your device’s connection on and off before reopening the application.
  • Updating your game.

In some mode-specific cases, like that of the 60cb1c7e MyTEAM error, using alternative squads or changing your lineup seems to inexplicably solve the errors. As connection errors do not originate from the game’s data, deleting and reinstalling NBA 2K24 won’t fix them.

If none of the solutions above works for you, then the connection error you are facing is very likely being caused by the game’s servers. If that’s the case, the error will be automatically solved once they become stable again.

To identify whether or not the error you are currently facing can be fixed from your end, you can check out the current state of the NBA 2K24 servers by heading to the official NBA 2K24 Server Status page. Staying up to date with the game’s official channels on X (formally Twitter) can also help you avoid the stress that comes with entering the game but not being able to play it fully.
