Quordle word-solving game has been acquired by Merriam-Webster
TechCrunch was the first to announce that Merriam-Webster had purchased Quordle, the word-solving game that had evolved during Wordle’s peak popularity. Instead of having its own website, the game is now integrated within Merriam-Webster’s.
“I’m delighted to announce that Quordle was acquired by @MerriamWebster,” a post on Quorlde’s Twitter account reads. “I can’t think of a better home for this game. “There are lots of news features and fun to come, so stay tuned!”
There have been numerous attempts to capitalize on the popularity of Wordle, and Quordle is only one of them. Users of Wordle would compete with their friends to see who could predict the daily word the fewest times. Quordle is four times more difficult than Wordle since you have to figure out four five-letter words at once with just nine guesses rather than just one. You may find fresh puzzles to tackle every day in both games.
Earlier this year, The New York Times announced that it had bought Wordle, a word game established in 2018 by Josh Wardle, for a seven-figure sum. Wordle will join the Times’ current portfolio of crossword puzzles and games. Words with Friends grew so popular that even though Wordle didn’t have an app at the time, Apple had problems removing clones from the App Store. Heardle, a Wordle-like game from Spotify, gives you five tries at guessing the title of a song from progressively longer excerpts.
