Metal Gear Solid 5's Main Voice Actor to Be Unmasked Next Week

Posted by Sammy Barker

New trailer focuses on gameplay

Solid Snake’s new voice actor will be revealed during Konami’s pre-E3 press conference on 6th June, according to a teaser image posted on NeoGAF. Legendary performer David Hayter waved goodbye to the character earlier in the year, after insinuating that he wasn’t even approached to play the part in the upcoming Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. With Hideo Kojima at the helm, though, we wouldn’t be surprised if the past couple of months have merely been a ruse, and Hayter will assume the role anyway.

Taking to Twitter, Kojima hinted that the title’s latest trailer will purposefully avoid lots of explosions, and will focus on gameplay instead. “It’s time consuming since there's lots of gameplay scenes in the next trailer,” he wrote. The developer also posted the above image, which is presumably from the video.

Konami’s pre-E3 press conference is set to start on 6th June at 18:00PM BST. In addition to new details and footage from Metal Gear Solid 5, it will also include a brief look at the next Pro Evolution Soccer game, as well as Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. Naturally, we’ll have all of the headlines.

Any new info would be nice. Kojima's been too quiet about the game to this point.

Pretty exciting. It'd make sense if they started distinguishing between Big Boss and Solid Snake, especially if they're ever gonna be in a game together. Maybe Naomi and Mei Ling will get their accents back, too.

i know that the main character of MGS3 will be Big Boss and not Solid Snake but it will still be strange not to hear David Hayter do his voice

then again he didn't do the voice of Big Boss in MGS4 but it made sense for him not to do it then

i dunno the game will still be epic regardless after all it's Metal Gear

Maybe they could use some form of "transfarring" ?

(haha! even the auto-correct doesn't believe in "transfarring"!)
