Someone must confront Kojima and find out why he did this.

I just can't believe they gave him no explanation and he (apparently) didn't even inquire further after they told him they wouldn't be needing him. It's crazy to me.

On another note, I'm getting kicked in the nuts lately in the entertainment portion of my life. Dexter's supposed to end next season, My Chemical Romance split up, Young Justice was cancelled, and now this.

That, and the end of the article notes:

The date doesn't make this an April Fool's joke, unfortunately. Hayter clarified later that the odd timing ha smore to do with his own schedule than anything else.

I believe it. He's not voicing Snake in Metal Gear V.

Big Boss in Metal Gear Solid V, however...

Nah, honestly I'm not gonna stress over it until the game comes out and we know for sure. The popular opinion is that David Hayter will voice Big Boss in the Ground Zeroes portion of MGSV, and Richard Doyle (voice of Big Boss in MGS4) will voice Big Boss in the Phantom Pain portion.

I think Richard Doyle can really nail Big Boss so I'm not that upset. I'm still not convinced it isn't another elaborate ruse though.

I'll never understand why when a developer has a good thing going that all the fans absolutely love they feel the need to change it simply for the sake of doing something "new". Surely Kojima knows just how much people hate it when voice actors are changed change.

*bleep* what this series is becoming. Kojima can suck a dick during his next three hour cutscene directed by Michael Bay

I rather don't believe it until the game is out.

Mostly because the voice actors their Agents get contacted for any roles, so I don't know why David would even go somewhere personaly for an update on the matter.

And Kris Zimmerman, The voice director, isn't she involved in this title?

If someone knows what actor fits perfect for a character, she knows who to get for it.

I don't get why she doesn't have any say in this, she's also a Talent Scout.

Unless it's kinda true, because this is Big Boss in the 80's, or 70's, somewhere, and if it's Closer to Richard Doyle's version then David Hayter, then I guess he will be the one for the job.

I bet Richard will be a bit surprised then if he has a lead role in a videogame, and kinda something for us to get used to a new lead voice for a character you'll play the game with.

Although I'm fine with Big Boss being assigned a new VA, I can't believe they are turning away a guy with such passion for the franchise in David Hayter. Sounds like he is as attached to playing Snake as we are hearing him voice Snake!

Richard Doyle would be a brilliant replacement, and would make perfect sense, but am I the only one who thought his grunts didn't sound like Doyle's voice in the TPP gameplay segment? Or maybe they were placeholder grunts for Big Boss, due to the audio not being finalised yet? Dammit Kojima we need confirmation here!!
