Find Out Snake’s New Voice Actor In Metal Gear Solid V Next Week

By Ishaan . May 28, 2013 . 6:17pm

As previously reported, David Hayter won’t be voicing Snake in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Instead, another actor has been chosen for the role, and we’ll find out who it is next week.



In a tweet, Konami teased: “The moment you’ve been waiting for! Who’ll be the new voice of Snake? Find out during PRe-E3 Show, June 6 @ 10:00 PST”.


Konami’s pre-E3 conference will be live-streamed for online viewing at a number of locations.

  • Martian Wong

    I want David Hayter Back!

  • SpecDotSign

    Havid Dayter. lol.

  • benhofb

    Joakim Mogren will voice snake. Duuh. ((Isn’t he out of the job any ways?))

    • M’iau M’iaut

      I saw a report he is heading up the team putting out Metal Gear Social in three and a half weeks.

  • PaleCompanion

    Preparing myself for the inevitable shitstorm.

  • りんごタルト@エスカのアトリエ

    I’d laugh my ass off if it’s Jim Carey. Or Morgan Freeman.

    • Ferrick

      i’d laugh, then proceed to bang my head to the wall while crying as it doesn’t fit the character at all

  • Kaitsu

    I like how they actually have to make a video just for this. Lol

    • ForteWily

      I am laughing at how much of a thing this is becoming.

  • The new voice actor for the American version that is. Konami are keeping the same stinking Japanese Voice actor. It ain’t right.

    • Robert Hendrie

      No sir it ain’t right

    • Oh? I thought they hadn’t announced the Japanese voice yet either?

      • Logan Moll

        They have for Ground Zeroes. It’s unknown if it will be the same for The Phantom Pain.

  • DarthSithZero

    Kideo Hojima

  • Ethan_Twain

    Fingers crossed for someone from hollywood actually way too qualified to be delivering Kojima’s crazy exposition dumps. Because when Kingdom Hearts hired Lenard Nimoy to deliver their utterly ridiculous narrative, it was just about the funniest thing ever.

    I vote for Ben Kingsly

    • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

      Still not funnier than Billy Zane yelling darkness.

      • Dario Portillo

        or Lance Bass as Sephiroth

  • Bloodios

    It must be Laura Bailey!

    • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

      No, Jessica Martin. After Other M imagine her with the thousands of lines from a Kojima game.

      • Bloodios

        Nah, man. I rather imagine Catherine whispering “Kept you waiting, huh?” to my ears XP

  • Byas

    Hayters gonna Hayte.

  • Trolljima is going to announce that David is returning even though he said he wouldn’t! Yah? No.

  • Kotorin

    Quinton Flynn

  • Logan Moll

    Do they actually think people are excited about this? If it’s a troll and it will be Hayter, fine, that will do. If not, though, then no one is going to be excited about this.

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    Liam Neeson

    • Alex B.

      You have me so excited for something that probably won’t happen. I’m probably gonna cry if it’s not him now…

  • Rytan

    It’s obviously Kurt Russell.

  • Richard N

    Johnny Yong Bosch or Yuri Lowenthal.

  • Isaac Newton

    20 bucks Richard Doyle

    • Joshelplex

      That would be the most likely choice. I think people maybe forgot that old man Big Boss had a different actor in MGS4 (and before anyone screams spoilers, that game was 5 years ago, you missed your chance at not being spoiled)

      • He did, and I can see them changing the VA for MGS5, but with Ground Zeroes taking place right after Peace Walker… Well, that’s a different story.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Sir Patrick Stewart. He’s migrating to MGS since Lords of Shadow is wrapping up.

  • Testsubject909

    1PM EST huh? I’ll be home at that time so I’ll be able to see it live. Sweet.

  • Tom

    I thought we already know who the new VO is and I just didn’t care since it’s not Hayter.

  • Kelsey Grammer

    • l777l

      Frasier Snake. That could be good. Add Otacon Nigel.

  • roydgriffin

    Please, let it be egoraptor! :D

  • Hatsuaki

    That’s just evil to David Hayter.

  • l777l

    Of course it will be Hideo Kojima. Oh boy.

  • Anime10121

    One more week! And what a way to kick off E3 with none other than Metal Gear Solid 5 :D

    I still believe Kojima is teasing and Hayter’s still Snake, I mean when he explained why he changed VA’s it didnt even make sense considering Japan’s still got Otsuka.

  • Im guessing kojima just trolling again and its still david hayter.

  • Farid Belkacemi

    Sorry guys, it’s Troy Baker ! :D

  • KingNigma

    Tara Strong

  • amagidyne


  • Poor David Hayter. Hopefully they’ll throw him a bone somehow or another.

  • Tiramii

    -REALLY- hoping they’re being trolls and keeping Hayter, because I don’t want anyone else but him being Snake. ;~;

  • i already know, Akio Otsuka
