David Hayter dropped for Metal Gear Solid 5

Iconic voice of Snake not asked to participate in sequel

David Hayter, famous in gaming circles for providing the iconic voice of Solid Snake, is not involved in the production of the just-announced Metal Gear Solid 5.


The voice actor/writer confirmed as much via Twitter when he told fans he wasn't playing the role of Snake in the new game.

"Well look," he said, "At least I had a good run."

When asked if he was at least approached by producer Hideo Kojima or his team, Hayter responded, "Nope".

HIdeo Kojima has revealed Metal Gear Solid 5 as a cross-pollination of both Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain at a press conference in Los Angeles today.

The first Metal Gear Solid 5 trailer can be viewed here, and a six-minute gameplay video is here.
