Our thoughts go out to him.

We report with a sad heart that the voice actor who played the villain in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty – John Cygan – has unfortunately passed away at the age of 63 this past weekend. Not only did Cygan play the voice of Solidus Snake but he also lent his voice talents to other games like Final Fantasy XV, Mafia III, and Halo 4.

The cause of death has not been released but one of Cygan’s close friends, Michael Chiklis, went to Twitter to share the unfortunate news and express his love for Cygan. “You are loved, adored and already horribly missed Johnny. I know this… Heaven just got a lot funnier. RIP brother,” he tweeted.

John Cygan will always be remembered as a loving husband, father, and actor. He’ll always be known for the vast array of characters that he played and will continue to keep us forever entertained.
