David Hayter Would Be All-In if Konami Wanted to Bring Back the Metal Gear Series

The world needs a real Metal Gear game again, and David Hayter would happily reprise his role as Snake

Metal Gear, a series once tied in with tactial espionage, corruption, and deceit has essentially gone dark in the world of games with the last entry, Metal Gear Survive obviously lacking Hideo Kojima’s nostalgic touch. AS you may or may not know, it was the first entry to the series since Kojima and Konami parted ways, and if you played it, it was painfully evident. It wasn’t only Kojima’s touch that was missing, though, as David Hayter – the man known for his role as Snake – was also missing from the game. Now, in an interview with IGN (foward to around 8:00), Hayter has come forward and said that he would be more than happy to take part in the Metal Gear Series again, be it a remake of older games or even a continuation of the series.

When asked about how he would react to being asked to return to a remake of Metal Gear Solid, he was very enthusiastic about the idea:

“Look, I love Snake,” he said. “I love doing that character. And as people know, I’ll do it at the drop of a hat. So if they wanted to bring me back to remake those games, I’d certainly be thrilled to do so.”

Considering he hasn’t played the role of Snake in a long time, this is good news – as long as Konami decides to actually do something with the series and do it right. His last role in the series was in 2010’s Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, but he didn’t have a place in either part of Metal Gear Solid 5. He did play Snake in Super Bomberman R in 2017 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in 2018, but that’s just not the same thing.

Unfortunately, his enthusiasm might not extend beyond his desire to return and that interview. Konami isn’t exactly reliable when it comes to remakes. It tried to remake Contra: Rogue Corps, but that was a complete disaster and there are no big titles coming from the studio anytime soon that we know of. There have been multiple rumors that Silent Hill (or the Silent Hills spin-off) were in the works. The first rumor started circulating back in January of 2020 while the second came in March 2020 and hinted that it could be rebooted for the PlayStation 5. Konami was quick to squash the rumors, but just a week later a Japanese horror artist shared some pics at Konami’s headquarters hinting at a Silent Hills reboot anyway.

If it’s true that either Silent Hill or Silent Hills will actually be coming out of Konami, it would be a welcomed development. However, if that is the case, then chances of a Metal Gear revival any time soon are probably slim. Not that it won’t happen, but I wouldn’t expect it in the next year or two – at least not until the company is done with whatever it has in the works for Silent Hill. Getting David Hayter on board with a Metal Gear remake or reboot would be a good first step, but I think we can all agree that Hideo Kojima needs to work his magic on it too. Metal Gear just isn’t Metal Gear without Kojima’s touch.
