The New York Times buys Wordle

New York Times buy Wordle:

Wordle was acquired from its creator, Josh Wardle, a software engineer in Brooklyn, for a price “in the low seven figures,” The Times said. The company said the game would initially remain free to new and existing players.

I’m very happy for Josh Wardle, especially after the twitter-verse got behind him to take down all the copy cats, but this news hits hard. Guess we will find out how much we pay to play this game once a day.
