NBA 2K21 has had a rocky start with the game crashing on Xbox to multiple connection errors such as the 2fd7b735, 4b538e50, and others. A new issue that players are encountering is preventing them from getting online and playing certain parts of the game like the MyCareer or Park modes. Players are encountering the NBA 2K21 error code 727e66ac.
You should know that this is not the first time this code has appeared in the NBA title. Previous titles have also had this error. Fortunately, that has enabled us to suggest some proven fix to resolve the error. Stick around and we will help you resolve the error.
Fix NBA 2K21 Error Code 727e66ac
Although the NBA 2K21 error code 727e66ac existed since the launch of the game, its occurrence was limited to a select few who reported it on Reddit, but ever since the last update which was supposed to fix bugs and enhance performance, it seems the game is crippled further. A large number of players are reporting they can’t access MyCareer specifically.
2K Support has acknowledged the issue on Twitter and said, “Hey everyone! We are receiving more tickets than normal, but rest assured: we’re doing everything we can to get to each case as quickly as possible. We appreciate your patience!” The Tweet does not mention the error code specifically, but given the rising complaint about the error, we assume players are raising ticket for the same error code.
Until the developers get to the end of the issue and release a patch, there are some workarounds that have allowed other players to bypass the bug.
The first solution you must try to fix the 727e66ac error is to completely restart the device, this goes for users on all platforms – PC, Xbox, and PlayStation. If that does not do the trick, here are some other solutions you can try.
Quite a number of users on Reddit have reported that if you get a friend to invite you into the game like Park and then load up the game, it bypasses the error and you can play, but we cannot confirm if this would work for MyCareer or other modes.
Another fix that’s been revolving around forums is to create a burner build. For users who are new to the game and unfamiliar with ‘burner build,’ it simply means to create a new character using the game’s player building mechanism. After creating the new character, load the game and skip the prelude. This will result in an error and you will be kicked out of the game. At this point, delete the burner build or the new character you created, load the main build or the original character and you should be able to play the game without the error code 727e66ac.
If none of the three solutions we suggested work to resolve your error, you may have to wait for a patch from the developers. As they have acknowledged the issue, it should not take long and regularly check if there is a small patch or update available.
