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.

So there you have it. Hayter is very adamant that he’s not returning for Metal Gear Solid V but could this be the last we hear of him? Let us know what you think about this news in the comments below.

  1. Good riddance

  2. It’s a ruse.

  3. Jesus, this is still going? Of course he’s not in it, if Solid Snake was to appear (which I doubt) he’d be a child and would have a separate VA to do the voice.

    1. Assuming the game takes entirely in the 80’s, then yes, Solid Snake would still be a child. However, there was rumor that the game could continue into the 90’s where Solid Snake worked under Big Boss as a rookie FOXHOUND operative. However, it was just a rumor and Hayter said he’s not involved with this game.
