Ack, Patricia, I was basing that on our get together this past
August.  Everybody there from Monolith was single-player I think. I
forgot about Toby <blush> and didn't know Geoff had joined them. But
while I was incorrect using the word "all," wouldn't it be fair to
say the company has been up until now a single-player developer?

The single-player URU has now been released, although the online
component was delayed a week. We'll know soon enough how it goes
there. ;)
