While DC Universe: Rebirth #1 isn't scheduled to be released until Wednesday, DC Comics is spoiling one of the major moments of the 80-page one-shot themselves. The Burbank-based publisher has sent out this page by Ethan Van Sciver with Wally West returning to the DCU, as well as sharing the previously-unrevealed cover to Titans: Rebirth #1 - with Wally transitioning to a new costume that's more distinct from the "New 52"'s Wally West whom is appearing in Teen Titans. (For more on two Wally Wests in DC's Rebirth, read this article.)
"Lost in the Speed Force until this moment, Wally will rejoin teammates Donna Troy, Arsenal, Garth, Lilith and Nightwing for Titans: Rebirth #1, hitting shelves June 15th," reads DC's press release. "In order to keep the mystery alive, DC solicited a cover featuring Donna Troy, leaving fans to wonder if the lost Titan would ever make a return. But now that Wally has appeared in the pages of DC Universe: Rebirth #1, we can safely say the secret is out!"
In the checklist on the back cover to DC Universe: Rebirth #1 which DC released to the press last week, it states that "Wally West returns to the team hunting a villain that cast him out of time."
Here is the solicitation for June's Titans: Rebirth #1, with that new cover by Brett Booth.

Variant cover by MIKE CHOI
Friends. Teammates. Titans. Donna Troy, Arsenal, Garth, Lilith and Nightwing were all that and more until a mysterious force erased their memories, forcing them to forget what they could accomplish together. Reunited with their memories returned, the Titans must destroy the interdimensional demon that broke them apart and threatens reality itself.
THEY SAID IT: “Grayson and Donna were a few of the characters I first worked on at DC, so it feels like a homecoming for me,” explains penciller Brett Booth. “I’m beyond happy!”
WARNING: Do NOT read this issue until after you read DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1!
