ERROR COLE: Many players have hit this error during It's a Cole World

Other players have reported facing error code 6f8ce31b intermittently since launch despite a reliable wired connection, so your internet is likely not the culprit.

How to fix NBA 2K23 Error Code 6f8ce31b

There's good and bad news when it comes to fixing NBA 2K23 Error Code 6f8ce31b, as not every potential fix has worked for every player.

The exact cause of this error is still unknown, but there are a handful of potential workarounds that have worked for some players.

One thing that's worked in the past is to simply not play NBA 2K23 for a few days, as for some reason the delay seems to allow whatever the issue is to catch up with itself and resolve.

In the past, playing a quick pickup game in The Neighborhood did help some, but that won't really be an option in The City.

The most drastic course of action some players may have to try is a complete game reinstall, but this can be a lengthy process.

To take that step, you'll want to ensure your save data is backed up to the cloud before deleting data saved on that platform and the game itself.

Once everything is cleared up, download the game again, download your uploaded data, and load things back up with your fingers crossed that it actually worked.

Unfortunately, it's no guarantee as players have already reported doing a full reinstall on NBA 2K23 and failing to get rid of error code 6f8ce31b, but for players who don't want to wait it is an option.

There's also hope that the error could be resolved with the next NBA 2K23 update, as Version 1.005 has just arrived.
