Solid Snake’s voice actor thinks a Metal Gear Solid remake is coming

The voice of Solid Snake, David Hayter, has suggested that a Metal Gear Solid remake could be in development for current-gen consoles.

The claim was made during a lengthy discussion with YouTuber Dan Allen, in which the voice actor said he’d been told that a new version of the Hideo Kojima classic could be in the works.

“I thought it was just a rumour until the day before yesterday when I got a text from one of the insiders, saying they heard it might really be happening,” he said.

“I only had some confirmation that it might not be a rumour a couple of days ago, and even that was still a rumour… but now it’s an industry rumour, so that tends to be a little more accurate.”

Hayter added that if publisher Konami were to remake MGS, they would likely need to re-record Snake’s voice work due to the age of the original recordings, adding that he thinks he can still “pull off” the young snake voice.

“They can’t use the original PlayStation [recordings] because the sound card isn’t anywhere near as good as today’s consoles,” he said. “So what happens is, you run those old tapes and you can hear traffic going by outside and all this room noise, because we didn’t do it in a studio: we did it in some living room.

“We did re-record the entire game for [GameCube remake] The Twin Snakes, so they could theoretically use those recordings, but again I don’t think the quality would match what needs to be done.”

Konami’s Japanese bosses are understood to have historically pushed back against most pitches to outsource their key games brands, which is a big reason why previous pitches for Silent Hill games, such as one by Until Dawn studio Supermassive, weren’t greenlit.
