Hitman targets May 26 Euro-release

Eidos confirms Hitman: Blood Money will be on European shop shelves this Friday on the Xbox 360, PC, PS2, and Xbox.

by

Eidos Interactive has announced that Hitman: Blood Money has shipped to European retailers and will be on sale beginning Friday, May 26. The game is on sale for the Xbox 360 (recommended retail price £49.99), Xbox and PS2 (RRP £39.99), and PC (RRP £29.99). It bears an 18 BBFC certificate in the UK. The game is rated M for Mature in North America and is planned for release there on May 30.

Developed by Io Interactive, Hitman: Blood Money is the fourth game in the series. This time, Agent 47 sees a more powerful agency go up against his own, The ICA. When he loses his contract with The ICA, he travels to America to hunt down those responsible, taking in locations such as Las Vegas in along the way.

pat_gamespot definetly getting it for pc , max graphics w00t If you've got a 4k gaming rig, sure. You can hope that they allow for more textures than the 360. Of course the Hitman series was never the prettiest out there anyway. Demo was okay, still getting it for the 360. Pisses me off that Eidos is making North America wait 4 more days than the rest of the world.

Eidos is a UK based publishers so their stuff is always out in the EU a lil early, its the other way around with US based publishers. Wettin my pants, my pre-order is already in the mail!!!!

Would be great if 47 could knock Lara off the top of the charts, but thats properbly wishful thinking

I think it's first in europe because it's Eidos. Tomb Raider is still at the top of the UK carts.

This new release date looks like a response to the fact the game was leaked. In which case, why did they delay it in the first place if it could hit the May 26 deadline?

ill be trying tomorrow, the 'accidental' dropping of a tenner on the counter when i ask if it's out may do the trick ;) Eidos usually release in europe before the US, which makes a nice change cos its annoying when US gets stuf on the tuesday and we have to wait - Halo 2 anyone?
