Freelancer type MMO
Singleplayer open world space games are nothing new. Hell, the X-Series singleplayer games rival EvE in size.
There's not one indicator of it being an mmo other than the writer speculating "it could be an mmo".
In fact, this quote:
“An inside source has confirmed that SOB (Valve’s new IP) is an unannounced game entitled Stars of Barathrum (working title). Plays like privateer/freelancer but also with the ability to command larger cruisers and capital ships. It’s a very vast and open-world game where you choose your own adventure, a lot of internal resources are being put into SOB,” reads the Facepunch post."
seems to pretty much confirms it's a singleplayer space sim.

Originally posted by Quirhid Not an MMO? That is great news! I've been yearning for a good space sim for ages. It is more likely a good one when its not spoiled by other players (unless it has co-op).
Have to agree. Not being an mmo made this game more interesting to me.
