Romero on Making an Old School FPS: "I Have Plans"

Famed designer John Romero tweets a response to the question about whether one of the creators of DOOM and QUAKE has "given up on making a good old school FPS." His answer is unequivocal: "Definitely not! I have plans..." He did, however, quickly debunk kneejerk speculation this might be Daikatana II. Thanks Janic.

Doom 1/2/3, Q1,2,4, Rage all had single player components (in most cases the majority of the game was SP). It's nonsensical to ignore all of that and only focus on MP/game mechanics/graphics etc and say "all these games were good".

I wouldn't call it nonsensical. It depends on what your priorities are. If you focus on multiplayer and don't care about single-player, than you likely thought the Quake games were amazing. If you only cared about single-player, you likely thought they were crap. Almost every game has both single-player and multiplayer these days, but never are the two given the same attention.
