According to the VG247's translation of a Danish newscast, Hitman Absolution is the most expensive game ever made by a Danish game developer.

Square Enix's Koji Takaguchi highlighted Eidos' portfolio at this years E3 which included Hitman Absolution as the Japanese publisher's saving grace at this year's E3 bemoaning the poor quality of their Japanese portfolio.

Takaguchi said (as translated by Andriasang): "Because we merged with Eidos and had games like Tomb Raider, Deus and Hitman, as a company we were able to keep face. But the decline in Japanese titles was almost humiliating. This has been a week where I worried daily about how we can fix this."

Hitman Absolution is due out on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 some time in 2012.
