A teaser trailer for who the voice actor shall be in a videogame. Even Hollywood doesn't tease a trailer on who the next leading role in a popular movie franchise like James bond will be.. (that I remember anyways)

And reading the comments section below, this seems to be a really important issue. The Metal Gear Solid franchise is truly big indeed!

It's totally going to be Hayter, Kojima is THE biggest troll ever... First off when this stroy first broke there was something rotten in Denmark, because why would they change the english VA and not the Japanes one? Second Hayetr posted on his twitter that he was going to E3, and hopes he does'nt lose his voice, with a wink... He's toatally in on it and Kojima is just trolling and hyping as per usual, I'd bet the barn on it...

As much as I like David hayters voice for Snake, his views on politics has me disgusted. Hayter, involved in Metal Gear games that expose a lot of government corruption, still believes in the Democrat vs republican paradigm, totally oblivious to the fact Obama and Romney are owned by the same banks. I just read his twitter, they guy is heavily brainwashed by the 4th Reich.

Both MGS and Splinter Cell now have something is common. Both of the original voice actors were axed by n00bs.

Do they really think we are going to fall for this trick?  Kojima really loves to build up hype about these games, but to get the voice actor involved is super funny.  David will reprise his role as Snake/Big Boss/Naked Snake/Old Snake/Solid Snake.  Unless Hayter was killed or something strange like that it will be him.  Why change now when they guy knows everything there is to know about the game and the character.  Kojima wouldn't risk all of the backlash that could come from a change like this.  Also, why even have an event about who the voice actor will be if it isn't going to be someone we all know and love.  I guess if it's their goal to get us to talk about this game, than it worked.  I will be buying this game day one regardless.  Let's just hope its a PS3 and PS4 exclusive. I know he mentioned Xbox, but I hope that was just a joke.

David might be the voice for younger big boss in metal gear ground zero, and then another actor for his older version in Phantom pain.

It has to be David! He's the original snake (at least in English voice) that I know.

While does everyone keep saying snake is in Phantom Pain when it Big Boss that you play as. Hayter never said that wasn't asked to play Solid Snake He said he was never asked to play Big Boss and why is everyone taking this so seriously, Hayter made a statement on April Fool's of all day's, does no one else find that a little weird.

In ground zeroes, Big Boss will be voiced by David Hayter.

In the Phantom Pain, 9 years later after his coma, he will be voiced by someone else. And I bet you solid snake will appear somewhere during that game and he will again be voiced by Hayter.

He was just a teen when he joined the green berets, (the youngest of his group), according to MGS1.

There is no way that David Hayter wont be at all in either games. NO WAY

Ahhh... Konami, the publisher that didn't have the balls to distribute the "Battle of Fallujah" game, or let the best competition to Resident Evil in the horror genre gets ruined first. Metal Gear is their only last bastion with integrity.

People who say a different voice playing as Boss makes the character void make me laugh. At the end of MGS4 Boss's voice was different and voiced by someone else but your views don't apply to that game?. I am in favour of Boss having his own voice to Solid personally and hope they give him a good, unique voice.

@alsatian86 I definitely think hayter is going to voice BB in Ground Zeroes but i believe a new voice actor will take over for Phantom Pain... most likely Richard Doyle.

@Dredcrumb9 Fictional government corruption. Also you're an idiot.

@TohouAsura No.. Big Boss gave him the codename Solid Snake, when he joined Fox Hound. 

So it will probably just be David.
