Wordle – Has the game got harder since The New York Times acquired it?

Wordle – the word guessing game that has taken the internet by storm – has been entertaining users since it went viral at the end of last year.

The daily online game challenges users to guess a hidden five-letter word in six tries or less.

You simply take a guess at what the five-letter word could be. After typing a word in, the game will tell you how close you are to the answer.

If a letter turns yellow, that means that letter is included in the word, but it’s in the wrong position. If the letter is highlighted green, it is in the right place. A letter highlighted in grey, however, is not in the word at all.

It has often challenged players – with some getting frustrated over the use of American spelling – but many are beginning to suspect that it has gotten harder since being acquired by The New York Times in January 2022.

So, is there any truth to the assumption that the game has gotten more difficult?

Has Wordle got harder since The New York Times acquired it?

The short answer is, no – nothing has been changed to make the game harder.

Some of the words over the last few weeks like ‘Ultra’ and ‘Aloft’ have frustrated players, with many taking to Twitter to complain and imply that The New York Times have upped the ante.

Some have even claimed that the words aren’t even real when they eventually get to the reveal.
