Dude, Grinder was already delayed several months ago to Halloween 2011. It's hard to delay it much more then that, even if it doesn't have a producer. There is still about 13 months until release, and there was probably 17-18 when the delay was announced.

No game can be made without proper funding, a producer funds a production and has final say on what content is made and included, therefore the Grinder does have a producer. However, it does not have a publisher. There is quite a big difference.
