The recent teases by Kojima Productions haven’t done any favours, but more importantly, it was revealed that series veteran and the voice of Solid Snake/Big Boss, namely David Hayter, wouldn’t be returning to voice the hero in the upcoming game.
Whether this was real or just another attempt to troll gamers still remains to be seen but Konami recently tweeted that we’ll be finding out soon – most especially during Konami’s Pre-E3 Show on June 6th at 10:00 PST.

As of now, anything is possible. Metal Gear Solid V will take place after the events of Peace Walker and will be in two parts – one a prologue and the other an epilogue, ten years later, but both focusing on Snake. Also, unicorns. Stay tuned for more.
