I think they said on either Newsarama or CBR that they will be running more than 52 series when these start.
No. According to the article they plan on sticking with the fifty two monthly titles.
Just found the article, it was actually IGN.
IGN wrote:
Last time DC launched new titles – dubbed the Second Wave back in May – they also lost a few of the original relaunch books, keeping the number of series in the DCU proper at 52. This time, however, that’s not the case. When I asked DC about this, they confirmed that they will indeed be publishing more than 52 titles come September. This doesn’t mean nothing will be getting canned – Justice League International has already been rumored to be ending at #12 in August, and Aaron Lopresti joining Sword of Sorcery appears to confirm this -- but it looks like they are no longer holding onto the "52 titles" rule
Well somebody has their information wrong. The following is from the originally linked Newsrama article:

Newsarama: Dan and Jim, if you're adding four titles, does that mean four titles are going away?

Dan DiDio: We've announced one cancellation already, which is Justice League International, and at this time, we're looking at reviewing the rest of the line. But one of the primary goals is to maintain the number 52 as the number of series that we'll be doing on a continuing basis.

Nrama: Is the number 52 important because of marketing, and the way the term "New 52" has caught on?

DiDio: Yeah, it is. From our standpoint too, the goal was always to constantly refresh the line. When you're in the business of comics, replacing series and canceling series is just part of the business that we do. And it's something that's always been part of the business since comics existed.
