The New York Times has acquired Wordle.


The newspaper says the game was bought up for a seven-digit number of dollars, but did not give details. They also promise that Wordle will continue to be free and work in the same way as before.

Wordle was created by computer engineer Josh Wardle in New York. He originally made the game for his girlfriend, but in October it became available to the public. On November 1, there were only 90 players, but as people began to share their scores on social media, the popularity grew rapidly.

There are now millions of people accessing Wordle daily. Once a day, a new five-letter word is posted, and players are given six attempts to guess. If you have a letter in the right place, it lights up in green, there is a letter that is in the word, it lights up in yellow, and if it does not, it lights up in gray.

The game is very popular partly because it is very simple – and without advertising or registration requirements. Separate versions have appeared in a number of other languages, including Norwegian in both target forms.
