Wordle is a browser game where players have to guess a five-letter word in six tries. Part of its popularity stems from social media posts showing the process players used to solve, or not solve, that day’s puzzle.

The Times said that it had acquired the game from creator Josh Wardle for a “seven-figure” price. The newspaper said that Wordle will initially remain free for new and existing players.

Reaction to the acquisition has been mixed. Many gamers are concerned that it will only be a matter of time before Wordle requires users to pay or create an account with their email in order to play.
