In the newest trailer for 'Blade Runner 2049', you hear Deckard say "we were being hunted" (in a recent interview by ScreenRant with Villeneuve, it's clear Villeneuve was not happy that line made it into the trailer). Couple that with the timeline that Warner Bros. just released at SDCC (article on it here), specifically the year "2023 Replicant Prohibition" and how Nexus 8s (a model with open-ended lifespans) were retired or went into hiding, does it suggest Deckard is a Nexus 8, maybe the first one Tyrell created before they were put into production 2 years after Tyrell's death?
