So if everything accelerated, what year are we in?
"The year is 2027. It is a time of great innovation and technological advancement. It is also a time of chaos and conspiracy". I was quite puzzled at the time, "hey, it's 2013, 2027 is not that far away, what's your backstory" trying to imagine what particular event could be the prequel to the world as pictured in DXHR, and I must admit pandemic fits in uncannily well %)
