Hideo Kojima explains why David Hayter is not in Metal Gear Solid V

While Metal Gear fans are excited this week with Metal Gear Solid V announced, many are displeased that Naked Snake/Big Boss will not be played by the character's longtime voice actor David Hayter, who wasn't even contacted about the project. (David Hayter, Hideo Kojima, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PS3, Xbox 360)

I'm getting a little tired of hearing this. I love Hayter, he is still amazing even today. HOWEVER, he is NOT Metal Gear, Kojima is Metal Gear. I understand how important he is to Snake just as much as the next fan, but I will never lose faith with Kojima at the helm.

He obviously understands how much we love Hayter, and he will do everything in his power to not let us down with the new voice actor. What remains the most important aspects of this game are the story, and how ambitious Kojima wants to get with the new game play mechanics.

DragonKnight  +   1052d ago
@BiggCMan: Kojima may be Metal Gear Solid, but he's not a part of the experience, Hayter is. A difference in the voice acting will be very noticeable, and for more than a few it will sour the experience. There will forever be a "what if" stigma attached to MGS5. It's the same with every iconic character in any game, movie, or story. When you make a fundamental shift, you risk a backlash because you took the time to build this foundation around a character (and in this case, a very noticeable voice) and then decide to toss all of that out on a whim.

From the way Kojima describes it, this is a recreation. In other words, yet another reboot. Reboots are the trend, an unfortunate fad, and one thing can be said for certain about almost all reboots. They will never be so positively seen as the original. Hayter will always be Snake (Naked or Solid) and he's what fans have come to expect and partly respect about the franchise. His absence will be noticed, and Kojima will hear about it, because many will feel the experience has been lessened for them. That's just what happens when you build things up and randomly change them.

"A difference in the voice acting will be very noticeable"

Not me nor anyone I personally know had noticed the different voice actor. I think I kind of understand but don't sour the experience just because of that. Something must've happened. It obviously didn't happened just because. But I personally won't let such a trivial thing ruin it for me.

Hayters voice is snakes personality. This is obviously an issue where hayter asked for more money and kojima told him to screw himself.

Gaming101  +   1051d ago
I don't trust Kojima's judgement one bit. In case anyone doesn't remember, it was his judgement that led to that whiny bitch Raiden becoming the main character of MGS2. If Kojima was capable of such bad judgement before before he's definitely capable of ruining the next game by changing the entire MGS universe by making Kiefer Sutherland the main voice actor for 3 different characters in the game.

Kojima doesn't understand Western audiences, as displayed with MGS2. You can't just change a main character, shove new characters/voice actors down everyone's throat and expect them to just automatically accept whatever you throw at them.

Dir_en_grey  +   1051d ago
From the trailer Big Boss had an terrible injury and was in the coma for 9 years.

It won't be weird if the injury changed his voice.

Anyway Hayter's been yapping a little too much for my taste anyway. Creating polls or what not and tried to use the public to force Konami to hire him, be it the script for the movie or staring in the movie and now MGSV.

So what if they decide to not hire you, be more professional about it.
Maybe that unprofessionalism is the reason Konami doesn't want to work with him anymore.

It's more like the time Ubisoft decided Micheal Ironside wasn't going to be in the next Splinter Cell game. THAT pissed a lot of people off.

Still, this is a different game. Maybe for a future game there will be the option to use Hayter again in a later game.

I think what this smells like is that Kojima never liked Hayter's voice for a while now. Or perhaps since the beginning.

The Konami localization team is responsible for casting so Kojima probably just let it go on for a while until he thought he could find the ripe opportunity to change the actor.

I honestly think that with enough pressure, they will bring back Hayter.
Irishguy95  +   1052d ago
Hmm, well I don't agree since he's gonna be an older big boss and we've already had Old snake and Big boss talking - Same VA = Weird.

But the reasoning Kojima gives makes no sense...Whats wrong with Hayter? Nothing at all - The iconic voice isn't going to affect how the game will be 'new'/
maddfoxx  +   1051d ago
Last year David Hayter said himself that he wont be returning to the series. Maybe he just doesn't want to do it anymore.
Eamon  +   1051d ago
maddfoxx, that is untrue. He is big fan of the MGS series. He never said he won't be returning. He did a poll to see how people would react if he didn't return.

Basically, he probably thought the usual timeframe that casting takes place in the development cycle of the game had already come, yet he was never contacted. So he had already suspected he may have been dropped but didn't want to start any issue about it.

As for this... it depends on how they execute it. Once you hear the new voice actor then you can make your verdict. You've heard David Hayter for the past 15 years... it's time for a switch up though I hope they don't navigate to far from what he established.
Root  +   1052d ago
So he did it for nothing

Wht the f***

Fair enough if he changed the japanese voice actor or a reboot but they havent done that

Japanese developers are so out of touch with their fanbase.

If Solid Snake ever came back I would like David to be Snake.....but all Snakes from here on just no.

Are you serious? you do know Arnold Schwarzenegger IS a terminator in T3: Rise of the machines, right?. The fact is he was helping instead of destroying this time.. almost exactly like in T2. The woman was just another Terminator, on a different mission.

Plus Terminator 3 was a good film, it had some nice action scenes.. i don't see why some people seem to hate it, sure T2 is better but T3 is very good.. certainly better than the one with CGI arnie.

Richard Doyle voiced Big Boss in MGS4, but as stated by porkChop, David Hayter has already played Big Boss on multiple occasions. It wouldn't make sense to replace when he's willing to work.
Eamon  +   1051d ago
Guys, Richard Doyle voiced Big Boss because he is in bloody late 80s.

Solid Snake is a clone of Big Boss, so naturally it makes sense if they happened to have the same voice.
TXIDarkAvenger  +   1051d ago
Yeah, I understand that Hayter voiced him previously but in MGS4 he did not because they needed a distinction between the two characters. Oh well, it doesn't bother me, Hayter and Richard Doyle did a good job, I don't mind which ever one it is.

-Gespenst-  +   1052d ago
Hmmmmmm, I wonder to what extent he intends to "recreate" MGS beyond the voice actor for Snake? Obviously, in typical MGS fashion, the trailer was pretty batshit, but I wonder... The inclusion of a more realistic voice actor suggests the games might become a little bit more generic.

Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, a lot of fiction these days is returning to genre, but with more sophistication and intellgence. I think of Cormac McCarthy's The Road- apocalyptic fiction, but very much a different take on it; a much more sophisticated and serious take on it in fact. Maybe Kojima can pull it off. Shame to see Hayter leave leave though.
Donnieboi  +   1051d ago
I think i might know why he chose this new voice actor, even though he's not as as good as Hayter...
In his interview with Geoff Keighley, Kojima said that he doesn't want to reveal who the voice actor is, however he hinted that it was important to him that this person do the voice.

ONE possible theory, for me, is that MAYBE the guy doing the voice is the same guy who will BE Snake in the new MGS movie. Maybe that's why he doesnt wanna say his name. I mean, if it's just some random other voice actor, why not just say his name? If u listen very carefully to the voice, I think it kinda sounds like Hugh Jackman whenever he plays Wolverine.

Seriously, go on youtube and compare the voice Big Boss has at the end of the trailer, with that of Hugh Jackman. Maybe that is why he wanted to keep the voice a secret, until he reveals who the movies actor is (whether it's Jackman or whoever else).

Just a theory. But listen to the voices before judging me. I don't like it, but it could be possible that the voice actor and the films actor are one in the same.

That's a really good theory, It's too bad I'll miss Hayter for sure.

I really hope the new VO doesn't throw everything off, I'm trying to be optimistic but similar to My Neighbor Totoro I can't handle watching it with the Disney actors voicing it. My main hope is since its a new story it won't be as jarring as watching a movie you already know.

Hugh Jackman WOULD make a cool Solid Snake in a movie, but as for being Snake's voice-over in a game--I don't think his voice is strong enough. But if it is him, we'll see with time.

But either way, whoever is the new Snake V/O, it likely will also be the movie actor...based on the specific ways that Kojima dodges the questions while still being stubbornly adamant about still keeping this new V/O actor (who I must admit is decent, but can't old a candle to Hayter's Snake).

No. There's a reason. We just don't know the reason yet.
It might just be that Kojima wanted to change things a bit but this is Hideo Frikin' Kojima we are talking about... I don't think Konami would have done this without expecting huge fan backlash. It just doesn't make sense, doesn't add up.

Either Hayter is in the game as someone else or... I dunno but I do know that it would be foolish of them to switch for no decent reason.
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   1052d ago
gonna catch way too much flack for this, but i really hated DH voice anyway.way too forcefully grumpy and macho. how cliche is it that we get another ultra deep voice, scratchy throated anti-hero? always so non-believable. Ive always felt like Hayters voice was one of the few things holding back the MGS series, whos voice acting cant even come close to games such as uncharted.
IronFistChinMi  +   1052d ago
I'm in agreement with you. I missed out on MGS3 and PW, but got back into it with MGS4 and absolutely hated his voice. Man, it was on a Christian Bale in The Dark Knight level for me personally.
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   1051d ago
OH MAN, the dark knight...
i never thought such a great movie would be so hard to watch. i cringed almost every time i heard bale speak as he was batman. it was just so...forced.
I think thats exactly the problem with snakes voice. they didnt just cast a voice actor with an appealing, manly sound. instead they just got a guy to do his best to "lay it on, thick", and thats what david hayters voice is today.
I think the problem is that everyone is in denial about hayters shortcoming because its tied to a series they know and love so much, when in reality: were NOT saying MGS isnt amazing and were NOT saying hayter isnt talented. the only point ive been trying to get across is to say that i personally feel that his role would better fit another voice actor. not trashing MGS here folks....jesus.

Uncharted has got good voice acting but not consistently. Look at UC3 was generic and actors did not seem passionate as UC2. Snakes voice is more legendary then entire Uncharted games. No one will remember any voices from Uncharted whereas snakes voice has been around and remembered for a long time. Nathan voice actor is very popular so its more recognisable. Where as others are forgettable and not good as snakes voice or voice acting.
Campy da Camper  +   1051d ago

MASTER_RAIDEN  +   1051d ago
i see waht your saying but i think how iconic a voice has become is largely irrelevant. things can become Iconic or legendary because theyve been around for a long time. snakes voice is obviously legendary because, for better or worse, its been around for like 20 years. Games like uncharted come and go. the series is no more than like 5 years old. it doesnt have nearly the amount of staying power the MGS series has.

BUT, coming back to my original point, just because something has become iconic, doesnt necessarily mean its any good. Hayters voice has only become an icon because its tied to one of the biggest gaming franchises of all time. it has nothing to do with how great of a voice actor he is.
JonnyBigBoss  +   1051d ago

I don't buy it. The Japanese voice actor wasn't changed, only David Hayter was. Also, Hayter's Snake voice isn't natural. He acts it. If Kojima really just wanted a different direction in voice he would have at least asked Hayter to try something else. But he didn't. They never contacted Hayter about the game at all. This excuse smells like a bunch of bs. And either way, getting someone who sounds like they're 20 to voice a character that's 48 is a stupid decision.

solidboss  +   1051d ago
So after watching the game trailer interview where kojima is discussing various things about mgsv, i hate the fact that there is no clear answer as to why hayter is not voicing snake. the whole change to roman numerals and the "V" actually meaning victory is cool i guess but the answer he gave about re-inventing the franchise (especially this late in the series) is just stupid. (reinventing game play is one thing but taking out the soul of the character without reasoning is dumb.

As many have noted Ground zeroes takes place immediately after peace walker. Kojima himself said that 80% of the game would be realistic and 20% sci-fi. so why the hell does snake's voice change so fast from peace walker to ground zeroes? from a realistic stand point it makes no sense at all.

At least ubisoft had a reason why ironside wouldn't return as fisher for the next splinter cell. First and foremost ironside did not like how ubisoft were handling sam after conviction making him "just another tool of the government" after giving him a personal story in conviction. now on ubisofts view the new tech. they are using to simultaneously mo-cap and voice act would of been to strenuous for ironside. those are two complete and valid reasons on both ends.

lets face it Hayter is the soul of the character for snake. Both for Solid snake and naked snake/Bigboss. do you guys honestly think a new actor would be able to voice the personality of snake the way hayter can? not for nothing but look at the new voice actor for sam fisher. does not have even a hint of the personality that michael ironside gave him over the years. after 15 years of voicing a character and from what we all know to be a good friend ship (between hayter and kojima) i think its really crappy the way kojima handled this situation.

I'm fine with the voice too, i always thought David Hayter sounded constipated doing snakes voice. it's the same thing with Hitman too they got rid off the original guy people didn't like it so they brought him back but his voice didn't fit with the new look Hitman he sounded too old (as for the game itself well that's just down to opinion).

The game will be awesome without him voicing it.
Welcome2Die  +   1051d ago
Here is something you guys dont seem to understand.

At this point in the game, Big Boss is getting older and thus his voice will change.
Where were you guys when Big Boss was voiced by Richard Doyle in MGS4?
IF David Hayter comes back as Big Boss its going to be very weird if they make a game after this where BB and SS meet...
NBT91  +   1051d ago
True. But the thing is Hayter already HAS been voicing Big Boss, he only didn't in MGS4 for obvious reasons.
He should be in this one though.
I get what you're saying, I mean if they ever (Heavens forbid) remade MG / MG2 then he'd have to have a different actor to Snake but then in that case Hayter shouldn't have voiced BB in all the other games...

While David Hayter deserves all due recognition, his voice work with Snake is a bit over the top. It's honestly quite hard to take Snake too seriously with Hayter's voice, so I'm all for Kojima's choice to freshen things up. According to the GDC-demo, they are using Kiefer Sutherland in the game which really lifts the bar for the voice work. Hayter is no K. Sutherland.

What I dont like about Snakes voice isn't that face that it's not David Hayter anymore, but the fact that this Snake sounds younger than David Hayters snake in Peace Walker. And I also don't like the fact that he now sounds like every generic Hero in every Action game (Isaac Clarke from Dead Space, Joseph Caplelli from Resistance 3, Dwitt from Bioshock Infinite etc.)

At least David Hayters voice was distinguishable from the rest. It would have been better to get someone who sounded older, but also rugged. That's my gripe

100% agree heck if they got Richard Doyle to do the voice for Phantom Pain I would be cool with that since he would actually sound you know older; not change his voice a week after the events in Peace Walker and having that voice remain the same after nine years in a comma.

Should of been this:

Big Boss Ground Zeroes: David Hayter
Big Boss Phantom Pain: Richard Doyle

^ This makes sense!
