EA’s Jade Raymond took to the stage at The Game Awards last night to present the award for best performance. She kind of took a dig at Konami/Kojima for not letting David Hayter in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
Before announcing the winner, she was talking about having to find the right type of actor in order to portray the role of a character.
She then went on to take a shot at Konami and Kojima for omitting David Hayter from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. She said: “Who could imagine Metal Gear without the voice of David Hayter?“. However, she immediately apologized and said that was a bit mean.
The interesting part about her comments is that Kiefer Sutherland was in attendance at The Game Awards. Sutherland is of course the actor that replaced Hayter in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
Some fans were hoping Hayter would be in the game as a surprise, but he was legitimately left out of the game for good. He did not voice any character nor was he involved in The Phantom Pain in any shape or form.
