Wordle Has Been Acquired by New York Times 

Wordle is a Reddit developer’s game that was published in October, requiring only six attempts to figure out a five-letter word that changes every day. The New York Times revealed on this Monday that it has purchased Wordle for an unknown seven-figure price. Wardle designed the game for his partner, who enjoys riddles. The peaceful daily puzzle has drawn hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of players since its beginnings.

Images of the game’s odd grid, as well as social media posts about its game of the day, have become commonplace. According to the founder’s statement, he is delighted that the New York Times will continue the legacy, and he admires the newspaper’s attitude to games and the care with which they treat their players. The creator of the game, Josh Wardle has ensured that players’ streaks and wins are preserved.

The founder, Josh Wardle has stated, 

“It (Wordle) going viral doesn’t feel great, to be honest. I feel a sense of responsibility for the players. I feel I really owe it to them to keep things running and make sure everything’s working correctly. It’s not my full-time job and I don’t want it to become a source of stress and anxiety in my life.”

New York Times has reassured the same thing Wardle has echoed in his statements,

“When the game moves to the New York Times, Wordle will be free to play for new and existing players, and no changes will be made to its gameplay,” 

The general manager of the New York Times Games, Jonathan Knight, has stated,

“The game has done what so few games have done – it has captured our collective imagination and brought us all a little closer together.”

The rise of a delightful puzzle in the third year of a worldwide epidemic has provoked numerous reminiscences about the simpler, more innocent days of the internet. It’s also sparked a small cottage industry of gameplay optimization methods, with mathematicians and linguists weighing in on the best first guess.
