The New York Times reported today that some users of the popular Wordle game may see a word that has been heard a lot in the news over the past week.
After Politico published a draft Supreme Court ruling on abortion rights last week, the New York Times said it had decided to remove the word “fruit” from Monday’s game. However, this word may appear if the user did not update their browser before the game on Monday.
The New York Times explained this discrepancy by saying that words are loaded into the game in advance. The Times reported that the “fruit” was loaded into today’s game last year.
“We want to emphasize that this is a very unusual circumstance,” the New York Times said Monday. “When we acquired Wordle in January, it was created for a relatively small group of users. We are now working to improve Wordle technology so that everyone always gets the same word. We strive to ensure that tens of millions of people have a pleasant and ongoing experience every day. ”
The New York Times Games division said it operates independently of the newspaper’s news department.
“At the New York Times Games, we take our role seriously as a place to have fun and escape, and we want Wordle to stay separate from the news,” the Times said.
The New York Times said the addition of Wordle has brought tens of millions of users to its website.
