David Hayter, the voice of Metal Gear Solid’s Solid Snake, has denied any rumors of him being involved with Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain.
David Hayter had worked with the Metal Gear franchise for years, starring as Solid Snake for Metal Gear 1,2 and 4 as well as Big Boss for Metal Gear Solid 3 and Peace Walker.
Hayter was supposedly lined up to continue his voice work for Metal Gear Solid V : Ground Zeroes as Big Boss but Hideo Kojima, creator of the MGS franchise, insisted that he was to be replaced with “24” actor Keifer Sutherland in an effort to “freshen things up”.
Many people believed that replacing Hayter with Sutherland meant that The Phantom Pain could see Big Boss meeting Snake and David Hayter would reprise his role as Solid Snake, instead of Big Boss. However, Hayer took to Twitter to squash these rumors.
Guys, For the millionth — and last — time. I am not in Metal Gear V. In any way. At all. No joke. Just not. True story. Best, DH
