I've searched and only found the limitations on Articles which is 32,767 but I need to know how many publications and subscribers it can replicate?

SQL Enterprise 2008 R2

Example I have 27 tables (articles) that need to be replicated for one publication (The DB). I need to do this for 2,500 DB's. Is that limit of articles across all publications or per publication?

thank you.

You could do a proof of concept where you replicate a single table to 2500 databases on a different server.
Just write a program that generates the scripts and off you go.

Still the real issue is the the performance of the distributor.
Are you planning to use pull subscriptions to move some of the load off the distributor?

Yeah I have wrote an app to generate the publications and subscribers. Right now its all Push but I do have the distributor on a different server and subnet so traffic congestion isn't the problem either. again I'll test with a few designs to see what the best one is in a large install like this.
