Do we have an official release date? Somebody said it'd be out around the time of TR Legend, and that came out today, so it must be somewhere around mid-April.

Eidos sends along the official North American release schedule for Hitman: Blood Money, proving that even a bald guy who kills people for a living can get a date. Here's word plans to have the next installment in the hired assassination series on shelves for all its target platforms by the end of May:

Agent 47 sets his sights on May 30 in North America

San Francisco, CA (April 12, 2006) -- Eidos Interactive, one of the world’s leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, today confirms that Hitman: Blood Money will be released in North America on May 30 for the Xbox 360™ and Xbox┬« video game and entertainment systems from Microsoft, PlayStation┬«2 computer entertainment system and PC. Hitman: Blood Money was developed by IO Interactive and is the latest installment in the notorious assassination series.

When assassins from Agent 47’s contract agency, The ICA, are systematically eliminated in a series of hits, it seems a larger, more powerful agency has entered the fray. For Agent 47, it’s business as usual, until suddenly he loses contact with The ICA. Sensing that he may be the next target, he travels to America, where he prepares to make a killing.

Hitman: Blood Money features a newly-created game engine, which allows for a new move set including the ability to create accidents and dispose of the bodies. IO Interactive has also revamped the game’s artificial intelligence and non-playable characters, making the game more realistic than ever before.

The game’s new Blood Money system gives players the ability to use their hard-earned cash in ways to match their personal style of assassination. How the money is spent will affect Hitman’s passage through the game and the weapons at his disposal, resulting in a unique gameplay experience for each player.

from Bluesnews, I read on another site that it's 26 of May for Europe.
