Wordle players everywhere are unhappy now that the New York Times has taken the game over. Mainly because their winning streaks have been reset!
I noticed yesterday morning when I logged on to play Wordle that the font was different on the title of the game, and from that I realized that the New York Times had officially taken the game over. They purchased the wildly popular word game in January for an undisclosed 7 figure amount, and the changes are already happening. Many irate fans quickly realized that their winning streaks had reset to zero, and they voiced their anger on Twitter. One person wrote this angry message, “THE NEW YORK TIMES RESET MY WORDLE STREAK!!! I *KNEW* THIS CHANGE WAS A BAD IDEA!!”
Meanwhile, The New York Times tweeted, “We are aware that your ‘current streak’ has been reset today. Our Games team is currently investigating. Stay tuned for more #Wordle updates.” Later they said they were at work figuring out a solution to the problem.
