Actual sub-site limit per site collection

I found an article from Dec 2014 by a Product Manager at Metalogix about increased sub-site limits for a site collection in O365.   The article mentioned that the limit went from 2000 to 100000. This hasn't been updated on the Microsoft site yet and it still says 2000 sub-sites per site collection.   I'm really hoping that the Metalogix article is correct and the MS site just hasn't been updated yet!  Does anyone know FOR SURE? 

Here's a link to the article:

Hi David,

Currently, the sub site limit is 2,000 for Office 365 subscriptions. We can see the limit here:

For any changes, we will update the News in our Office 365 roadmap. Also, we suggest you subscribe to the Office Blogs for the latest information about Office 365 updates.

Thanks for your understanding.
