Eidos Hungary (formerly Mithis Entertainment) is a Hungarian video game developer and a wholly owned studio of Eidos Interactive (owned by Square Enix). They were developers of the popular strategy franchise, 'Battlestations' which consisted of Battlestations: Midway and Battlestations: Pacific.

Mithis Entertainment was founded in 2002, and employed around sixty people. The company's founder, owner, and CEO was Robert Sugár. Mithis produced two titles, a space-based strategy game called Nexus: The Jupiter Incident and a shooter game called Creature Conflict: The Clan Wars. Mithis Entertainment has worked on Battlestations: Midway (a World War II naval strategy game) and Creature Conflict: The Clan Wars ("a blend of turn-based tactical and real time action/arcade elements"). In 2006, English video game publisher Eidos Interactive purchased Mithis Entertainment and renamed it to Eidos Hungary as an internal development studio for the publisher.

On April 19, 2010, Square Enix Europe confirmed that Eidos Hungary had closed down the previous year due to a decision not to continue the Battlestations series.[1] Part of the crew later went on to form Most Wanted Entertainment.[2]
