Is David Hayter about to reprise his role as Snake?

As most Metal Gear Solid fans and gamers know; in 2013, David Hayter was replaced with Keifer Sutherland in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and onto The Phantom Pain (2015), which caused a spark of controversy on several different blogs and gaming related pages. This alongside the Kojima/Konami dispute which has finally settled down.

However, twenty-two hours ago; David Hayter tweeted “Colonel, What’s the meaning of this? Why am I back in this booth?” with a relevant picture dictating lines as Paul Eiding’s ‘Colonel’ Roy Campbell, and David Hayter’s possible Solid Snake. Eiding was tagged in this tweet, which is possible speculation to reveal his return to the series, reprising his role as Colonel Campbell, and Hayter as Solid Snake.

However; upon looking at the picture (Below) inspecting in photoshop, a line behind the page shown roughly states “Technology like this hasn’t been used since 1984” which said in my review about The Phantom Pain (2015), the game is taken place in that year.

This either means that The Phantom Pain will be receiving story DLC where players could possibly see the epic fight of Solid Snake and ‘Big Boss’ in the first Metal Gear released in 1987. Despite this, there are many possibilities that David Hayter could even receive a DLC character in which players can play as Solid Snake, but this is currently possible speculation as Konami have recently released the Quiet Downloadable pack for Metal Gear Online.

Another possibility of this is a remake of Metal Gear on the FOX Engine, but that seems to be unlikely. A more likely theory about this would be a Graphic Novel dubbing. However, we cannot be certain until the bold black box which Hayter unfortunately covered up becomes known to the public eye.

As Hayter claims this to be a “#SnakeMystery” I’m hoping for the best, as a return to the series would finally tie up the games as a whole, and make what would appear to be a broken ending finally come full circle with the other games in the series without possibly skipped end-credits scene.
