Konami has promised to reveal who will voice Snake in Metal Gear Solid 5, and if you like jumping to conclusions, you may be interested in a cryptic response from David Hayter on the subject.

The publisher urged its Twitter followers to tune into Gamespot for the pre-E3 show at 10:00AM PST on June 6.

“The moment you’ve been waiting for! Who’ll be the new voice of Snake?” it asked.

Fine and dandy, and indeed we’d like to know, as long-time star and fan-favourite David Hayter seems to be off the cards – wait. What’s this?

Well. Wouldn’t that just take the Hideo-cake.

Metal Gear Solid 5 is divided into two parts – The Phantom Pain and Ground Zeroes. Nobody actually knows whether these are two games or one, with mixed messages coming out of Konami reps – we’ll probably know more after E3. Here’s everything we do know about it – or think we do.
