iO Interactive announced on Twitter today that Hitman: Absolution will be hitting store shelves on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC on November 20th.

Hitman super-fans who preorder at Gamestop will also get a pre-order bonus called Hitman: Sniper Challange.  Technically not DLC, Sniper Challange is a stand-alone minigame where players snipe a target and all of their bodyguards as quickly and accurately as possible for a high score.

Here's the kicker - Unlike most pre-order bonuses that eventually become available as paid DLC, the Sniper Challange will not be released at a later date. So if you really want to play every Hitman game, then you need to run out and put your money down.
