We knew this day would come, but it still feels strange to say goodbye: the original site that hosts Wordle — https://www.powerlanguage.co.uk/wordle/ — now points to its new definitive home of https://www . nytimes.com/games/wordle/index.html.

In addition to some minor UI changes to better blend in with the clean and spacious design language of NYT‘s games section, Wordle is effectively identical. In fact, if you’ve played today’s puzzle, you’ll find the solution unchanged in the Gray Lady’s realm – and if you’ve been a desktop solver all along, then streaks. he must be maintained (although this does not seem to be the case for everyone). Strangely though, Wordle still doesn’t appear in the Games landing page.

Wordle’s original page still doesn’t redirect on mobile if you’re hoping for a last round.

Wordle was launched last October as an everyday word game, in part inspired by the Schedules‘ Game Spelling Bee. After gaining massive popularity, its creator – Josh Wardle – sold his game to his spiritual progenitors for an undisclosed “seven-figures low”. It is believed that the game will remain free to play despite the change in ownership.
