A new Crackdown game could be on the way to Xbox One.

An image of the Crackdown orb (spotted by NeoGAF) appeared in one of the tiles on the console's dashboard during Microsoft's Xbox One conference, suggesting that the series could be making an appearance on the next-gen console.

Microsoft plans to release 15 exclusive titles on Xbox One within the first 12 months of launch. Crackdown 3 could be one of them.

But a new Crackdown may not be the only game accidentally revealed during Microsoft's show.

To the right of the screen, a still from another unannounced game showing a cartoony Knights Templar and the Rare logo also appears to be visible.

The image could be the first look at Rare's "historic" IP, which Microsoft is expected to reveal during next month's E3.

Xbox One launches worldwide later this year.

If we go by the idea that "historic" is meant to mean a game from a franchise that Rare is bring back, instead of Microsoft just blowing their own trumpet, then going by a quick Google search I'm going to guess the Rare game is "Wizards & Warriors". It's an action platformer series made by rare for the NES. Their publisher at the time (Aclaim) is long gone, so Rare could hold the rights.

The thing I have to go off of is the fact the Knight Templar you play as in NES game looks like the Knight in the picture above. (Except the knight in the picture doesn't have a helment). It's the only game made by Rare that even somewhat resembles a fantasy/ medival theme.

Amazed nobody saw the 'Halo', 4th tile from left. It's on the Games tab, the console isn't backwards compatible, the Halo TV series would be in the TV and movies tab, so Halo must be one of the 15 exclusives mentioned.

You think it was accidentally revealed! I don't think so.
