It's been pretty well broadcast in everything from Comic Shop News to Wall Street Journal that Peter will be coming back as Spider-Man. The question is - how. Looks like it won't be too long before we find out. In addition, it seems that the recent round of title-cuts will affect the Spider-Verse. Sadly, I hear that Green Goblin will end after issue #13. Also, New Warriors is supposedly to be axed as well.

I have also heard tell that the cross-over format between the titles will be abandoned, and we will instead have story arcs running within each title. Personally, I think this is great news. Recently, having multiple writer/artists teams work on the same story seemed to result in a bland and mediocre product. Allowing each team to go their own direction will hopefully lead to more creative and polished stories - exactly what Spider-Man needs right now.
