Availability Information
Due to licensing, Attack on Titan will be on hiatus for the following periods:
Episodes 1-13: May 20, 2014 – August 19, 2014
Episodes 14-25: September 9, 2014 – December 9, 2014


It looks like crunchyroll needs to renew their streaming contract for those episodes and that this is only temporary while they are in negotiations over the contract. Expect to see the same with the latter episodes come September 9th.

Would they be arrogant enough to announce the dates BEFORE the negotiations are finalized months in advance?

Yeah, you're probably right. The overall deal is likely done, or close to it, considering the specific dates given. In all likelihood this is FUNimation wanting to have a window to sell the DVDs and Blu-rays without much competition from the crunchyroll stream.
