Wordle desktop site now redirects to The New York Times
We knew this day would come, but it’s still strange to say goodbye: the original website hosting Wordle – https://www.powerlanguage.co.uk/wordle/ – now points to its new permanent home of https ://www.nytimes.com/games/wordle/index.html.

In fact, if you’ve ever played today’s puzzle, you’ll find the solution unchanged on the Gray Lady’s Estate – and if you’ve been a desktop solver all this time, series should be preserved (although this does not seem to be the case for everyone). Oddly though, the Wordle doesn’t appear on the Games yet. landing page.

Wordle was launched last October as an everyday word game partly inspired by the Time‘Spelling game. After gaining huge popularity, its creator – Josh Wardle – sold his game to his spiritual ancestors for an undisclosed sum in the “lower seven figures”. It is believed that the game will remain free despite the change in ownership.
