Voice actor David Hayter would be happy to return as Snake in Metal Gear Solid if the series returns. 

Hayter responded to a fan who asked whether or not the rumours circulating about a Metal Gear Solid remaster are true. While he claims to have no knowledge of whether or not a remaster is happening, Hayter expressed a desire to reprise his role, saying, "I'm always down to return to Shadow Moses."

There's been a lot of talk and speculation surrounding the possible return of Snake. A recent claim came from YouTube channel RedGaming Tech suggested that the original Metal Gear Solid will be getting a remake as opposed to a simple remaster, with all of the requisite bells and whistles. According to the channel's source, the supposed remake will land on the PS5 as a console exclusive. Since then, we've not heard much else about this rumoured remake, but there continues to be a lot of buzz from Metal Gear Solid fans surrounding the idea. 

Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance also recently re-released on PC. Resurfacing on GOG after being absent from storefronts for several years, the two classic Konami titles landed on the platform along with Konami Collector's Series: Castlevania and Contra. The prospect of seeing a Metal Gear Solid 6 release has long been the subject of much speculation, especially after the restructuring of Konami following the launch of Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom Pain back in 2015.

Back in July, Metal Gear Solid movie director Jordan Vogt- Roberts expressed an interest in creating an animated series based on the game, with the wish of getting Hayter back to reprise the role of Snake. 

Here are all of the upcoming PS5 games we know about so far.

I started out writing for the games section of a student-run website as an undergrad, and continued to write about games in my free time during retail and temp jobs for a number of years. Eventually, I earned an MA in magazine journalism at Cardiff University, and soon after got my first official role in the industry as a content editor for Stuff magazine. After writing about all things tech and games-related, I then did a brief stint as a freelancer before I landed my role as a staff writer here at GamesRadar+. Now I get to write features, previews, and reviews, and when I'm not doing that, you can usually find me lost in any one of the Dragon Age or Mass Effect games, tucking into another delightful indie, or drinking far too much tea for my own good.
