Manga Entertainment has made the following announcement on its facebook page.
The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya will be released on DVD on 7th November. However, our sincerest apologies as the Blu-ray will now be released on the 20th February 2012 due to major problems with the production.
Jerome Mazandarani of Manga Entertainment added a longer explanation on the same page:
We received the BD master some weeks ago and had check discs for QC [Quality Control] received early last week. We discovered that the disc does not play on PS3, which as you can imagine is a major problem! So, we now have to re-author the BD from scratch. (...) the only way we can fix this problem is by authoring a new disc ourselves in London. It usually takes 15 weeks from receiving an QC'ing a new HD master to authoring the Blu-ray and getting finished goods onto shelves.
