David Hayter Says He Would Voice Snake Forever, Might be Trolling

Is Hayter really gone?

Posted By | On 01st, Apr. 2013 Under Article, News

Now here’s the thing: Since Hideo Kojima revealed Metal Gear Solid V and shortly before that, one man has been making headlines for something as simple as a poll. This was David Hayter, who voiced Solid Snake through the series. He inquired via Twitter if fans would mind him not returning this time.

Later, it was revealed that Hayter would in fact not be returning to voice Solid Snake/Big Boss, and that the decision rested with Kojima.

Now, he’s stated that, if it were his choice, “he would do this role forever. To hear anyone else’s voice coming from Snake’s battered throat, makes me a little ill, to be honest.


“But the truth is – it’s not my choice. Any and all casting decisions are the sole purview of Hideo Kojima, and Konami itself. And that’s fair. And I’ll get by. I am not lacking for employment on any level.

“But I didn’t want anybody to think that I was intentionally abandoning them. And know that I will miss this job, and this character, very much.”

So why is it conspicuous? Well, because VOs don’t usually make this kind of commotion when it comes to their roles. That he posted this on April Fool’s Day and explicitly mentioned the date at the end of the post is enough of an indication. He may not return as Snake, but Hayter may not necessarily be gone.

Stay tuned for more details.

    fact: David Hayter gave up half his paycheck merely to get the original voice
    cast for Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes.
    He was that dedicated to bringing the fans the authentic metal gear
    experience. He is too nice to ask us, but how could we possibly turn our back
    on him in his time of need? I will fight for David Hayter any day.”

    No Hayter. No Buy

    This is even weirder seeing as they are keeping the Japense VO. Logic fail on Kojimas part (saying this was a reinvention of the series), not going to buy

  • Usupredme

    Ok but until it is confirmed a trick I will continue to protest this game.
