HBO’s Westworld series has already ingrained us in the futuristic corporate world with Delos Incorporated and their revolutionary approach to truly immersive experiences. Of course, things haven’t been going so well for the company since a serious malfunction at Westworld started to shake things up. The ramifications of those events are still being felt, and the third season will continue to tell that story. But there will be a new fictional company entering the fray.
As part of the recent Wired 25 tech event, a panel called “The Future of Data: The Promise and Peril” was sponsored by a company called Incite Inc. During the panel, a minute-long advertisement features Jefferson Mays as Liam Dempsey Sr. talking about the benefits of trusting in a tech company like Incite, which has “unprecedented computing abilities, analyzing data for life’s most unsolvable problems.” They tout being able to protect the climate while helping someone find a job. Surely there’s nothing more nefarious or worrisome happening behind the scenes, right?

Get the details about Westworld Awakening, a new Westworld VR game from HBO and Survios.

Westworld will never give us what we expect, but the trailer for season 3 manages to be even more baffling and tantalizing than ever before. HBO released the Westworld season 3 trailer during the highly anticipated Game of Thrones finale last night, but you’d have difficulty immediately recognizing it as a trailer for Lisa Joy and Jonah Nolan’s sci-fi drama.
