We still don't know who the voice of Snake will be in the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain .

Earlier, the original voice of Snake, actor David Hayter, made it plain that he hadn't been contacted to reprise his role. This ticked off the hardcore fans something fierce, but now it seems possible that Konami and Hideo Kojima may have reconsidered. Or maybe they were always planning to use Hayter…who knows?

And it's not like we have any sort of official confirmation. But after Konami posted up a certain video (see it below) on its Twitter page, Hayter Tweeted the following encouraging response:

" I'm so excited for E3! I just hope I don't lose my voice. 😉 "

Many avid fans of the franchise made it plain that they wanted Hayter to return. It just doesn't feel much like MGS without that guy, right? Maybe the fans will get precisely what they want on June 6…
