The lights are on
We've seen this trailer before, but this is the first time we've seen it in English.
The original Japanese version of the trailer was shown just over a year ago. It's weird hearing the trailer in English, and even stranger to hear a different voice coming from Snake's mouth.

When I first heard Keifer Sutherland was going to be doing the voice of Big Boss, I had reservations. At the moment, they're still in place even after hearing him in the trailer. It's a very disconnecting feeling hearing a new VA from an established series. I felt the same disconnection when they changed Sam Fishers VA.
Reguarding the trailer, Keifer's voice just does not have that oomph and power that Hayter's had. Like others have said, it sounds very generic. This is just a trailer though and it might get better as the game goes on. Time will only tell.
My reservations still stand until I get some quality time with the game to find out if the voice will grow on me or if I'll be saying "Man, I really wish that was Hayter."
You messed up, Kojima-san.
didnt we hear a different voice in the big long director's cut trailer thingy?
Weak. This series got weaker after 3. I played 4, beat it, wasn't satisfied. Didn't pick up uprising either. Probably not gonna pick this up, MGS ended with 4, too many gimmicks and no more Hayter? WTF was Kojima thinking.
"Kept you waiting, huh?"
Yes, yes you did, Kiefer. I've been wanting to hear this line in english for a very long time.
The built-in video player is still so inconsistend for me :/ game looks awesome.
I think that Sutherland is not...awful. We shall see how this goes.
Except for the odd delivery of the famous "Kept you waiting, huh" line, he sounds pretty good.
Yep, sounds like Kiefer Sutherland.
well, that was weird.
yeaaaaaa im just going to play the Japanese version with english subtitles
Eh, they could've picked somebody worse. At least they didn't go with H. Jon Benjamin.
Keep you waiting huh?
Sound so wrong from anyone but David Hayter
Snake: David?.. David!? Please respond!!
I cannot describe how odd it is to hear Sutherland's voice when watching this video. I will not be able to shake the feeling of 24 when playing this game.
