Microsoft has said they're seeking to hire a number of recently laid off developers from OnLive.
OnLive's recent business troubles and consequent staff reduction have left many former developers of the cloud gaming service looking for a job. Microsoft is now utilizing EventBrite to carry out some recruiting.
We are eager to speak to individuals and teams affected by the OnLive transition. With the stunning success of Xbox/Kinect and the accelerated growth of this business, we are looking to add key players who want to make a real impact in creating groundbreaking new products and services.
The software giant has positions open in their Mountain View base, as well as their headquarters situated in Redmond, Washington.
Microsoft has been rumored to be open to the idea of an acquisition of OnLive since the company's inception. Adding credence to their previous interest in the firm, the document leak pertaining to the Xbox 720 stated that Microsoft listed OnLive as a potential "acquisition target".
