Studios hardly ever 'announce' anything these days. The last Fox announcement on its superhero properties was the press release on Mark Millar being hired, if I recall correctly. Of course we now have Singer announcing casting via Twitter, so that's changed the way news is coming out.
But you're right that they will hardly reveal a reboot is on the cards while they have The Wolverine and DoFP on the horizon.
