The New York Times announced on Monday that it has acquired Wordle.

It's simple to explain the appeal of Wordle, a popular puzzle game that challenges players to guess a five-letter word every day. It's a game that requires little of its players other than a few minutes of their time each morning, and playing it makes them part of the "in" crowd. While Wordle is free, it was just a matter of time before it piqued the interest of a big company. And that has already.

The acquisition will assist the New York Times in expanding its digital content as it strives to achieve 10 million subscribers by 2025. The daily online game gives a participant six chances to guess the day's secret five-letter word with the fewest number of guesses.

Wordle was created by software engineer Josh Wardle and has gained millions of users since its October release. Wordle has become unavoidable for many, as it displays on Twitter feeds of people who share their scores. It's had a significant influence, and it's already one of the defining trends of 2022.

Wordle, which was first released in October by former Reddit software developer Josh Wardle, will remain free, with no changes to its gameplay, according to the New York Times.

"Wordle will now play a role in that everyday experience, offering millions more people across the world another reason to turn to The Times to satisfy their daily news and life needs," the newspaper stated.

As more readers utilize their mobile phones and tablets for their daily dose of news and entertainment, games and puzzles are an important component of the New York Times' effort to keep its audience engaged on its applications and websites.

The New York Times actively maintains various games. The most well-known is certainly the crossword puzzle, but it also includes Spelling Bee, a game in which participants attempt to produce as many words as possible from a given set of letters, Sudoku, and others. Notably, such games are separated into their own Games subscription.

Finally, it's not shocking to see Wordle sold to a bigger company, and the New York Times seems to be a nice fit for the word game. Of course, some people will be sad to learn that it is losing its independence. After all, the goal is to help The Times build its membership base, thus Wordle's days as a completely free game are probably numbered. In the meantime, fans can continue to enjoy Wordle on its regular website.

Wordle is now available.
