Though the update seemed to focus on Ranked Matchmaking, it seems many who play MyCareer are the ones who have been affected.

MyCareer HB-RS [1702] Error

Soon after the update rolled out fans were unable to access MyCareer mode due to a HB-RS [1702] Error. This problem in particular has been a thorn in the PGA Tour 2K series since 2K21 and has struck back once again. The issue typically stems from players trying to connect to an online mode. The message reads “An unknown network error has occurred. Please try again later. Error Code: HB-RS [1702]”.

According to the PGA Tour 2K23 official Discord channel, the developers are aware of the issue and are currently working on a fix. While there's no workaround method that works 100% of the time, here are some things you can do to maybe solve the issue.

For console players, Check the status of the PSN and Xbox servers. At the time of writing this article both servers seem to be up and running, but keep an eye on it if you ever have network errors.

For PC players, shut down any unused programs that require internet access. It could be that there's too much traffic in the network which could be affecting your connection to the game mode. You can also try booting the game in the early hours of the morning or late at night just to check and see if it works. Since many people tried booting the game after the update's launch, it may have caused some errors.
