The Great Intelligence made a big noise about the final atrocities that the Doctor committed before his death. Deaths of Billions. In my mind there is no way that the John Hurt Doctor is from the past.
But then the doctor wouldn't know who he is or what he's done, and apparently the Doctor has been carrying this burden for a very long time, but if its a future incarnation, he wouldn't know yet, so that doesn't make sense that Hurt is a future incarnation.
