“There must be more to the story that none of us really know,” says Raiden.
Ever since it was announced that David Hayter won’t be reprising his role as Big Boss/Snake in Metal Gear Solid 5, there has been a feeling that this is yet another classical ruse by Hideo Kojima. Fans believe that there will be a time jump in The Phantom Pain and Hayter will return as Solid Snake.
Hayter has denied any sort of involvement with the game on multiple occasions but according to information revealed to Raiden’s VO Quinton Flynn, Hayter is still Solid Snake. “More information has been revealed to me. I did not understand it in the beginning, I thought that Kiefer will be replacing David as [Solid] Snake which is not true but as Big Boss and then I was perplexed about the whole thing. Later it was explained to me that Kiefer will be replacing him as Big Boss and David will still be [Solid] Snake,” he said in an interview with AfterBuzz TV.
“I don’t really know what to feel about it. I saw an interview with David and he said he loved what Kiefer did, so if he is okay with it then I guess am okay with it. When I got this petition online from fans, I said David is not only a friend but he is an incredible [guy] and I would lobby to petition to keep his job. You know as well as I do, that there must be more to the story that none of us really know. There is management, there is agents, there is money…so who knows what it comes down to.”
Calling it now, are you guys ready for Kojima’s classical ruse cruise?
