David Hayter, famous in gaming circles for providing the iconic voice of Solid Snake, is not involved in the production of the just-announced Metal Gear Solid 5.
The voice actor/writer confirmed as much via Twitter when he told fans he wasn't playing the role of Snake in the new game.
"Well look," he said, "At least I had a good run."
When asked if he was at least approached by producer Hideo Kojima or his team, Hayter responded, "Nope".
HIdeo Kojima has revealed Metal Gear Solid 5 as a cross-pollination of both Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain at a press conference in Los Angeles today.
