Eidos Hungary Kft.v.a. (formerly Mithis Entertainment Kft.) was a Hungarian video game developer based in Budapest, Hungary. The company was founded as Mithis Entertainment, by Róbert Sugár on 20 November 2002. Between 2002 and 2006, the studio produced Nexus: The Jupiter Incident (2004), a strategy video game, and Creature Conflict: The Clan Wars (2005), a shooter game. In 2006, British video game publisher Eidos Interactive acquired Mithis Entertainment and renamed it Eidos Hungary. Following the acquisition, Eidos Hungary went on to work on real-time tactics games Battlestations: Midway (2007) and Battlestations: Pacific (2009).

On 19 April 2010, Square Enix Europe confirmed that they had shut down Eidos Hungary in October 2009, due to the discontinuation of the Battlestations franchise. [1]
