For many years, there was only one voice for Solid Snake: David Hayter.
That's why the long-time fans were a little miffed when they learned that for the first time in franchise history, Hayter wouldn't reprise his legendary role in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain . Konami and Kojima went with accomplished "24" actor Kiefer Sutherland instead.
However, the fans wouldn't be deterred. They've been wondering if Hayter might take another role in the game, just so it would still feel like good ol' MGS. Unfortunately, that isn't going to happen, as Hayter was awfully blunt on Twitter :
"Guys, for the millionth–and last–time. I am not in Metal Gear V. In any way. At all. No joke. Just not. True story."
Kojima said that because MGSV is a "new type of Metal Gear game," they wanted to have the actor reflect this change as well. Ah well, such is the way. Sorry, guys.
