For anybody not already aware of this news that came out a couple of weeks ago, Tom King's Batman run will NOT be reaching issue #100.
DC has confirmed Tom King's upcoming departure from the core Batman title - but revealed that his Dark Knight stories will continue in a 12-issue Batman/Catwoman series drawn by Clay Mann that is scheduled to debut in January 2020.
"We’re making changes to our comic book publishing line to set DC up for continued success,” said DC’s editor-in-chief Bob Harras. "We’re starting with the bestselling Batman comic after ‘City of Bane’ wraps up in December. ‘City of Bane’ is an incredible story and an integral part of our overall ‘Year of the Villain’ campaign, and a new Tom King and Clay Mann Bat/Cat series in 2020 fills the gap once BATMAN begins to ship monthly."

As for what DC has announced regarding the new Batman-connected title King will be writing for 2020,
BATMAN/CATWOMAN #1 CONTINUES ONGOING BAT/CAT ROMANCE
By Official Press Release Friday, May 24th, 2019
BURBANK, CA (May 24, 2019) – DC fans can expect an exciting future as the publisher revealed early details on its strategy for 2020, beginning with stories featuring tight, intertwined narratives across DC’s comic book lineup. Leading this charge into the future is Batman, the World’s Greatest Detective and a cornerstone of the DC universe.
Beginning in January 2020, DC’s ongoing BATMAN comic book, currently shipping twice-monthly, will return to a monthly schedule, allowing DC to incorporate the monthly BATMAN title into the larger DC universe and continuity. BATMAN will ship alongside a new 12-issue BATMAN/CATWOMAN series by Tom King and Clay Mann, while Bat-Family titles DETECTIVE COMICS, CATWOMAN, NIGHTWING, BATGIRL and others will continue into 2020 with no immediate changes to their shipping schedules.  
“We’re making changes to our comic book publishing line to set DC up for continued success,” said DC’s editor-in-chief Bob Harras. “We’re starting with the bestselling BATMAN comic after ‘City of Bane’ wraps up in December. ‘City of Bane’ is an incredible story and an integral part of our overall ‘Year of the Villain’ campaign, and a new Tom King and Clay Mann Bat/Cat series in 2020 fills the gap once BATMAN begins to ship monthly.”

And for the record, it's not just Batman that's dropping from a twice-monthly shipping schedule for 2020. All of DC's currently twice-monthly titles (including Detective Comics) will be back to being regularly monthly books again in 2020.

That is a relief, I have been enjoying a lot of those books but twice a month is a strain on the budget.

Most of their books had already dropped back to a once-a-month schedule already. But there are still a handful that are currently published twice-a-month:
* Batman
* Detective Comics
* The Flash
* Justice League
* Wonder Woman
