If you missed it yesterday, long time Metal Gear Solid voice actor David Hayter revealed on his twitter account that he would not be returning in Metal Gear Solid V. This stunned and shocked many die-hard fans who believe the actor’s voice has become synonymous with the franchise. The news was so viral that David Hayter actually started to trend on twitter shortly after the release of the Metal Gear Solid V trailer from GDC.
To date, David Hayter has portrayed the main protagonist in the Metal Gear series a total of 8 times. Metal Gear Solid V would have been his 9th. Some say this to be Kojima up to his old tricks again, but just in case, a few fans have rallied together to start a petition to get David Hayter back to where he rightfully belongs.

Kojima Productons, KonamiHello, we are a group of Metal Gear fans who have set up a petition to show fan demand for the return of David Hayter as the voice of Snake in MGS V: The Phantom Pain. Please bring back David Hayter.
The petition was created earlier today and has generated almost two thousand signatures. Do you feel that David Hayter should be in the new Metal Gear Solid V? Click the link below:
