David Hayter Confirmed Out Of Metal Gear Solid V

David Hayter Not In Metal Gear Solid V

Geoff Keighley from GTTV tweeted he just got the chance to interview Hideo Kojima. Kojima confirmed David Hayter will not be in Metal Gear Solid V.

David Hayter has been the voice of Snake/Big Boss since the first Metal Gear Solid game came out 1998. He became a fan favorite ever since. Fans will be disappointed that he won’t voice Big Boss in Metal Gear Solid V.

Keighley tweeted the following:

“Fun 1 hour interview with @HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN. Will have it online later this week. He confirmed no Hayter for MGS5 and a lot of other things”

We will have to find out later this week the reason why Hayter has been dropped. Many people are speculating that Big Boss has grown older and they needed an older voice actor to play him…

David Hayter tweeted the follwing about not being in Metal Gear Solid 5:

“Well look,

At least I had a good run.”

    I think David wasn’t picked because Kojima is planning Big Boss to one day face Solid Snake right before Solid kills BigBoss killed. This scenario will be similar to Jack confronting The Boss at the end of MGS 3. Having the same voice for both Big Boss and Solid Snake in Outer Heaven battle would ruin the experience, that’s why two distinct voices were necessary. I understand why this was necessary, I’m just mad Kojima didn’t make the decision to change voices in Peace Walker which is the true prequel to MGS V. I’m surprised no one else is looking at this situation in this way.

    Fun fact: David Hayter gave up half his paycheck to get the original voice cast for Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes, just because he was so deticated to the authentic metal gear experience. He is too nice to ask us, but how could we possibly turn our back on him in his time of need? I will fight for David Hayter anyday.
