Wordle, the famous online word game, was recently bought by The New York Times, according to the American media company’s announcement on January 31. The Times will include the daily word puzzle in its collection of word games such as The Crossword, The Mini, and Spelling Bee. The popular word puzzle was originally developed by Josh Wardle with his partner Palak Shah in October 2021. It is a once-a-day letter game wherein users try to think of the word of the day by guessing five letters. Each letter changes its color to either green, yellow, or grey, which tells the player that it is either correctly placed, in the word but in a different location, or not in the word at all. Meanwhile, Wardle expressed on Twitter his excitement on the game’s continuous success, “I’d be lying if I said this hasn’t been a little overwhelming. After all, I am just one person, and it is important to me that, as Wordle grows, it continues to provide a great experience to everyone.”
