If this is true, it also almost certainly rules out the possibility of David Hayter playing a younger Snake at some point in the future as well, what with the facial motion capture and all. They'll probably get the same person that will play Snake in the MGS movie to do it.

It really breaks my heart to think that David Hayter may never be involved in an MGS project again.

Also, I could've sworn David Hayter was mentioned. I thought Avi Arad said something like, "my good friend Hayter used to play Snake, but Kiefer is in a class all his own" or something like that. I could've misheard.

I'm still going to hold out hope for E3 to reveal Kiefer, Kojima, and Hayter are all in on some grand ruse, but... at this point I'm probably just being foolish...

Its starting to seem like hayter will in fact have nothing to do with the game, but im still not counting out that kojima is trolling us all.

I saw someone mention that this video is fishy.

For one, Kiefer Sutherland is wearing the same clothes in all the clips for the interview, voice work, and motion capture. Seems strange that they wouldn't have videos from different days or something. I think that might be a bit of a flimsy conspiracy theory because it's entirely possible that they just stopped by the studio one day to film some stuff, but there you go.

There's also the way they sort of discard Hayter. It's criminal, almost suspiciously so, especially considering all the hubbub about this.

I could probably come up with some theory based on a loophole in what was said in the video too, but I'm kind of tired right now, and besides it's not going to change what's been said or bring the truth out any faster (assuming this somehow isn't the truth). I'm still holding out hope, but I think I'll just wait to see what happens at E3 at this point.

*fingers crossed for a "kept you waiting, huh?" from the mouth of David Hayter.*

You know what, I think you're right.

God I hate Kojima... such an asshole.

We'll keep on thinking it's Kiefer playing Snake and when the game finally gets released, we'll release he was the voice actor for the other guy and Hayter played as Snake after all... Just wait... (Is that optimistic?)

Something feels so strange about this. How they abandoned Hayter completely and really haven't said a word about it. Rubs me the wrong way, but of course I still have faith in Kojima. I still can't trust any info that he puts out. I REALLY wanted Richard Doyle...

At some point they are gonna have to transition Snake's voice to at least something resembling Richard Doyle's... but we will see.

And Metal Gear has officially sold itself out by hiring a Hollywood actor. I'll blame Microsoft. Seems like ever since they started getting Metal Gear treatment (Metal Geat Rising announcement and on) it's been gradually getting worse and worse (Rising, then moving developers to someone who was clearly ignorant of the essence of Metal Gear, open world gameplay, new voice actor........). Solid Snakes story however has been concluded and that's enough for me. Thanks for trying Kojima, but I won't be getting this.

To be quite honest though, the concept of this game never really enticed me. An open-world Metal Gear? Not my cup of tea. If Hayter were to voice Snake I may have picked it up, but this just finalizes my decision.

I like to think it will be a cross between Peace Walker and Farcry and classic Metal Gear. All the above sounds good to me.

It almost seems too ridiculous to believe. If they're trying to reinvent the character, why have an actor who has already has made their identity around a prominent series? That would be like trying to repurpose say (random choice) Elijah Wood. That actor will probably be solely remembered as Frodo. Or another good example; Daniel Radcliffe. No matter what else he does, he will always be best known for Harry Potter. So why have Kiefer, who already has a substantial career in Hollywood and is best known for 24? No one will be able to truly accept him in the role. Whenever you refer to the actor, you will always refer to him as 'the guy from 24', and that is why I think such a choice (and even the choice to scrap Hayter) is inherently flawed against this supposed 'new direction'.

Kiefer is a damn good actor, but David is the voice and persona of Snake, I'm definitely interested to see how this is going to pan out..
