OnLive has confirmed that Steve Perlman will remain the company’s CEO.
"Steve continues as CEO and is currently concentrating on the transition; once this is complete, he'll be very focused on our next product releases and the vision," said the company.
Since that announcement, Perlman has donated US$50,000 (AUD$48,000) to a fund that was set up to help pay former employees’ healthcare costs.
The fund was set up last week to provide temporary healthcare insurance for people laid off or fired from OnLive jobs.
“This is a really good alternative [to the company's now-defunct former employee healthcare plan]," said Perlman.
"I just added $50,000 to the bucket and will add more as needed. We’ve already hired more people back this week, and my hope is to get a lot more back.”
Those who lost their jobs in the OnLive restructure received no severance pay or notice, and lost any equity they had in the company.
In debt to the tune of more than US$40 million, last week OnLive was saved from bankruptcy by investor Gary Lauder. In the process over half of the company’s staff lost their jobs.
"Gary invested in OnLive because he sees OnLive as the future of gaming, computing and media delivery, he recognises just how big an idea it is, and is standing firmly behind it. With OnLive on solid financial footing, we see great things ahead," said the company.
"There will be changes to the organisation both with old and new OnLive staff that will be bringing new features and games to the service. There will be more announcements - both large and small, such as the arrival of the Vizio CoStar and the Ouya Kicktarter project, and stay tuned for major announcements coming soon."
"Instead of 'game over,' we will take this to a higher level."
