DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Dan DiDio commented on what surely will spell new horizons for the comic publishers and be a pivotal point in how they move forward:

This heralds in a new era for the DC Universe which will allow us to publish something for everyone, be more expansive and modern in our approach and tell stories that better reflect the society around us. Whether you’ve been a DC fan your whole life, or whether you are new to comics – there will be a book for you beginning in June

DC’s ending the New 52 comes after Convergence in April / May which sees braniac create an new prison-habitat for the heroes that populate the DC multiverse.
