Hollywood has been in the business of adding a good amount of padding to the public budget numbers for many years now. Star Trek Into Darkness likely cost nowhere near that $190 million dollar total that's been made public.
Actually Hollywood has the opposite problem. Ballooning costs due to special effects and conversions to 3D.

As far as Abrams goes, he will likely produce the third feature not direct. So it should still be on for a 2016 premiere.
Being a producer doesn't mean anything. Ask Gene Roddenberry.

Besides, Oz, the Great and Powerful is suppose to be getting a sequel and it made $491 million worldwide on a $234 million dollar budget.
All I can say is that a sequel isn't "official" until they start filming.
