David Hayter has given some interesting comments on what he thinks about Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and the direction it’s going.
David Hayter was the iconic voice of Snake ever since Metal Gear Solid came out in 1998. However, Konami made the decision to replace him with Keifer Sutherland for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. This is mainly because they wanted Snake to officially transition to Big Boss. In either case, many fans were upset to know that David Hayter will no longer be voice acting in a Metal Gear Solid game.
During an interview with NerdReactor, David Hayter had a lot of interesting things to say about Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. First of all, he clarified “I’m not in the game. In any way.” Some people thought he’d make a cameo or something, but this comment proves he’s not in the upcoming game at all sadly.
He also respects Keifer Sutherland as his replacement in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. He said “it just feels different from what we were doing before”, but overall he has no bitter feelings about Keifer Sutherland voicing Big Boss.
