The first thing that impressed me with their last trailer is that it's a full 8 minutes long one and I watched it twice and did not feel at all that it was that long which means that I was so caught up in it that I did not see the time pass...
As for a theory, well It's hard to make but I'd say that you will have to fight some kind of demon that has the power of destruction at the scale of the universe or something. The baby in the container probably represents some kind of Messiah, some chosen one which you must protect at all costs against the demon who probably wants to get his hands on the baby to either destroy him or corrupt him and turn him to the dark side so to speak. And the player will probably control Norman Reedus as a human that will be tasked with protecting said baby.
As for those being abducted, they probably know that their suffering will be so huge if they get caught that it's better to kill themselves in any way possible or maybe if abducted they will become demon slaves or something.
Perhaps the game takes place across different times and epochs of human history. The first trailer seemed to have taken place during WW2 if I remember correctly. The new trailer is non specific in that regard.
Oh and I forgot to add that in my opinion this Lovecraftian demon has the power somehow to destroy all mankind or maybe he wants to erase humans from the cosmos, make sure they never existed or something but he must destroy or corrupt the chosen one first (the baby).
