David Hayter, the original voice of Metal Gear Solid’s Snake, may be making an appearance in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. See what a new Tweet from the voice actor has to say.
Lol, I've been positive since the beginning that he'd be in the game in some form.
Look I was ok with sutherland and just accepted it but after all this trolling from hayter I'm now going to be pissed if he isnt in it..
i hope Hayter comes back (at least as SSnake)...he is the true snake voice (specially with his mGS1 acting which cannot be surpassed and gave snake a character) Sutherland while i was positive with him after i played extensively MGS GZ is nowhere near David hater (and too serious for the role wihtout having the necessary humor for the char) ..
Me too, I hope he's in it...
I'm still unsure if that's really trolling or being legit sad.
if solid snake is alive during the timeline then he can be in the game. i just wish he voiced big boss as well. no offense to keifer. great actor. but david hayter is the heart of snake
I'm gonna go ahead and solve this mystery for folks since it's obvious. You can't have two characters with the same voice. It can be confusing. They switched to Sutherland so when the series comes full circle and big boss meets solid snake people won't get their voices mixed up. Hayter is coming back to voice solid snake. Big bosses clone son. Come on it was staring you all in the face the whole time.
He will be in MGSV. The guy is a major troll just like Kojima. I believe the game will end up leading to Solid Snake going to Zanzibar or something. Ending the game with 'Kept you waiting huh'. And MG1 and MG2 will be done in Fox Engine.
watch Metal gear solid be all a dream in snakes coma
Damnit, I have a strong feeling you ruined the game. Somehow that's exactly what this game is.
Considering how angry he got when people kept asking him about the game, some of harsh things he said about the way he was treated, and the fact that someone tweeted him that picture and he just retweeted it, I highly doubt that he's in the game.
I think the same. All trolling aside, he most likely isn't in.
He is obviously Solidus Snake in the game. I have been saying this since it was announced he was not going to be Big Boss.
Solid Snake v.s. Big Boss in Zanzibar Island what an epic boss fight that would be
I hope this is true.
David Hayter Placed A Metal Gear Solid Easter Egg in Wolves
Uh huh, yeah okay.
After all these teases and takebacks, I'd be more surprised if he WASN'T in the game.
me too. this back and forth nonsense just to get attention is pretty sad. i think he's in the game and this whole ploy reminds me of when joaquin phoenix said he was going to retire from acting on david letterman. i knew dman well it was just an act. it reeks of something hideo kojima would cook up.
after all that trash talk against konami, it's too bad they let him crybaby his way back.
He'll be coming in briefly at the end as solid snake. Read the instruction guide for the first mgs for ps1 (you can find the pdf) the phantom pain will end right at the beginning of "Metal Gear," OR, the Secobd half of the phantom pain will be playable as the original, albeit very young, solid snake.
The only way I see him being in the game is if at the end we see Big Boss talking to a young Solid Snake. That or they use archive footage for flashbacks for some reason.
For all we know the whole second half of the game is us playing as Solid Snake and then Big Boss would be the final boss of the game. I can't wait to find out.
Kojima level trolling right there lol.
Oh for crying out loud!! Confirm or deny already. Stop tearing at my heart!!
You're tearing me apart lisa!
He looks a little like Johnny Depp but without the crazy...
Final chapter in MGS5, Infiltrate Outer Haven as Solid Snake, count on it.
That's my prediction as well. The original "Metal Gear" (nes) will be remade for the last 1/2 or 1/4.
I don't think so. I think an entire game in the last chapter is too much. I think the game will end with Solid Snake being briefed for Operation Intrude N313 and perhaps we'll see a quick scene of Operation Intrude N312 failing.
Think more "Ground Zeroes" kind of mission, not a different game altogether.
This isn't MGS2. This is the prequel for the original. I'm pretty sure the next game we get will be a full fledged remake of the NES/MSX game. You are selling the story of Ground Zeroes too short. GZ has a lot of ground to cover before we get to Big Boss threatening the world.
Don't forget, Big Boss was in a coma for 9 years after the events in Ground Zero. I don't know the exact timeline but I think the last chapter being the infiltrate mission for Mr. Hayter might just sneak in.
That'd be rad. You go, Hayter.
Is this guy really that desperate?
I admire how he likes the character and the Metal Gear series.
Lmao! God I love David Hayter.
i was gonna complain about another twitter thing on n4g. but i guess this is pretty cool. if hayter isnt in mgsV then he must be going through a mental breakdown. now lets stop talking about if hayter is going to be in mgsV or not and wait for the game to come out and play.
People need to let go
Very much doubt he's returning. It's just a picture. Not to mention, how old would Solid be anyway? Teenager? Younger? He can't voice a child.
Exactly. He's 12 in TPP. Unless Kojima has a hidden chapter (Epilogue) that he is keeping a secret where the game is set years after 1984 then we can start discussing the possibility of Solid appearing. He's still David just as much Liquid is still Eli.
I think it was fan outrage that got him back in, if he is indeed.
I wonder if this is going wind up being the most expensive moment of trolling in modern video game history? Hideo Kojima brings in Sutherland for Ground Zeroes, has everyone up in arms thinking the Voice of Snake has been replaced and Kojima has effectively *sold out.* Then The Phantom Pain releases and everyone turns on the game and in the opening credits: "David Hayter as Big Boss" ..And the people. go. wild.
David Hayter is NOT playing Big Boss. He's just not. Kiefer Sutherland is BB. There's a possibly Hatter will play as Solid Snake, but I don't even find that very likely.
A man has said it before and he'll say it again. They should tease Solid at the end just as Big Boss finds out about his existence. *after credits a figure approaches a man smoking in a dark corner* "how would you like a new assignment? There's a problem we've been looking to solve for some time now. Have you ever heard of Outer Haven?" "When can we start...Boss" *cut to Big Boss handing the assignment to Solid Snake* remember he was the main guy talking to you on the radio in MG1 so he would be the one giving the assignment.
The new voice actor is so much better, whats so special about this guy?
Following MGS story we can see why they needed another voice to Big Boss. In this game we can finally have the big battle of Big Boss vs Solid Snake, what would be amazing since we will be playing this game as Big Boss but is Solid Snake that wins. Are we facing a new MGS2, where Kojima shows a lot of stuff but we don't see the other half?
He's in the game. Although it may not be the case, the rumored release date is April 1...April Fools Day...we all know Kojima is a giant troll...wouldn't surprise me if it did drop that day, Hayter was planned to be Snake all along, and they just laugh at all of us... I'm probably wrong, but we can only hope the above is the case.
The big argument people that people keep making is "You can't have two characters with the same voices in the same scene." Why does Hollywood then get a pass on this for any movies they made which involved clones? I'm not saying I don't support this reason just have it make sense! You expect me to believe that Snake's voice changed that drastically after Peace Walker into Ground Zeroes within that one week timeframe? If they wanted the voice change to have a deeper impact they should of had David reprise the role in GZ and then have Sutherland in for TPP. Either way my bets are on PythonSelkanHD's theory on whats happening.
