WESTWORLD fans have had their appetite whet for the upcoming third season with a mysterious teaser trailer.
The promo for the hit show introduces us to a frightening AI tech company called Incite, one which rivals Delos, the firm that rules the theme park.
We already know that the HBO series’ third run will open up to the outside world beyond the park after rogue robot Delores left Westworld at the end of the second season.
This will give us a closer look at the creepy tech giants that dominate the landscape, including the all-powerful Incite.
The fictional company is introduced in the teaser, which plays like a fake promotional video for the business.
“The world is complex, complicated, messy…but life doesn’t have to be,” says Incide CEO Liam Dempsey Sr in the clip.
“The future is powered by you,” he continues. “And we know you.”
The businessman then goes on to say that his company “analyses data for life’s most unsolveable problems”, adding that the “possibilities are limitless.”
We then see an eye turn into a robot eye in the haunting tease, which doesn’t feature any footage from the actual show.
The ad is accompanied with the sinister caption: “If Data is Destiny, Then Chart The Path.”
In typical Westworld fashion, the cryptic promo doesn’t actually reveal very much at all, but it does hint at dark times ahead as technology and artificial intelligence continue to dominate the world.
Season two of Westworld ended with the reveal that Delores’ mind had been implanted in a copy of Charlotte’s (Tessa Thompson) body.
There was also a flash forward where William (Ed Harris) learnt that his conciousness had been implanted in a host body.
Season three will air on HBO in the US and Sky Atlantic in the UK at some point during 2020.
Some of the show’s sets were destroyed in the California wildfires last year, delaying production, but luckily no actors were hurt.
