They have been teasing the relationship since the beginning of new52. Dick and Babs have moments every so often; not enough to make it a major plot point, but enough that fans don't forget the pairing. And it does seem like it is ramping up lately in NW, BoP and BG having hints and mentions more frequently than before.
(That's why I never cared about Shawn Tsang. She was Dick's girlfriend as DC is teasing Dick and Babs having feelings for each other. Shawn just seems like a transitional gf until Dick gets back with Babs.)
Will this story mark them getting back together? Maybe. It is an storyline centering on them, but it doesn't cross over with Nightwing as there is a Spyral story going on at the same time in the NW book. On the other hand, DC is getting other classic popular pairs back together like Ollie/Dinah and Barry/Iris.
