All of OnLive's 200 employees worked daily with the cloud gaming service's traffic numbers, and knew that something big had to happen for the company around this time of the year. That's not to say everyone expected to lose their jobs together on the same day, no severance, no benefits, no nothing.
That's according to a former OnLive employee present for yesterday's meeting, at which the effective end of the company was announced. OnLive's assets have been acquired by an unnamed investor, and a statement yesterday said all of its services will continue for subscribers. The problem is, there didn't appear to be enough of them to sustain the ambitious venture.
