I'm just setting myself up for disappointment, but I'm still holding onto the hope that Snake is still in. That Eric Laden tweet about David Hayter has to mean something and I just refuse to believe that he did voicework just for Raiden's story. I know I'm most likely wrong but I'm choosing to live in ignorant bliss for now
Snake is in the game. It's just a matter of if he's a playable character or not. Worst case scenario: he's part of Raiden's story
My theory? Snake was going to be revealed and Raiden was to be a secret character, but he was leaked, so he had to be revealed. That also explains Platinum's problems with how the reveal was handled.
What are these vouchers you speak of?
