In Konami’s pre-E3 show tonight, it was confirmed that Kiefer Sutherland is playing the role of Snake in the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
Whether this means David Hayter will be cast aside completely, it’s not known. There was a slight tease in the video with Avi Arad saying that “A friend of mine used to do Snake”… Could this be another Kojima twist?. It was also revealed that Metal Gear Solid V will be set in 1984 where Snake is 49 years old
