An image of the Xbox One user interface hit the internet Thursday showing several unannounced titles for the next-gen console.
During Microsoft’s Xbox One reveal, the company promised 15 exclusive titles to be announced at E3 in June with eight of those being completely new and the other seven based on existing franchises. This image shows a mix of eight games with two, possibly three, already revealed with the remaining five or six still to be announced.
You can check out our guesses on what each game the various images represent is in this list.
The user interface image also shows a little of how Xbox One owner can find games. There’s the familiar “Browse Games” and “Recommended Games” buttons but also a “Bing Games” which is Microsoft trying to make “Bing” a replacement buzzword for “Search.”
What is missing from the interface though is any mention of Xbox LIVE Arcade or Indie titles thus confirming reports that Microsoft is tearing down the walls that divided them and pooling them together so that Arcade and Indie titles sit right alongside retail releases.
The Xbox One will launch later this fall before Thanksgiving. GameStop expects the price to be less than that of the Xbox 360 at launch.

This image should immediately be familiar to those that played Crackdown and/or Crackdown 2 on the Xbox 360. Yes, this is clearly an agility orb from the open-world third-person shooter series. Xbox One owners can look forward to making incredible leaps and busting criminal heads as Agents once again.
Forza Motorsport 5
Obviously, this image is the already announced Forza Motorsport 5. The racing franchise has become a cornerstone of Xbox consoles and it will be interesting to see what Turn 10 Studios can do with all the extra horsepower in the Xbox One.
Unknown Xbox One Title
This Xbox One game image is difficult to decipher and could be almost anything at this point. It indicate a world building game, a “god” game, the return of Viva Pinata or an upgrade to Kinect Adventures.
Halo 5 is obviously in the works for the Xbox One and so it has been teased. However, it is interesting that Microsoft didn’t just come out and include the “5” here. This leaves open speculation (though unlikely) that it could be a branch off story a ala Halo 3: ODST or even Halo Wars.
Another Unknown Xbox One Title
Now what is this image for an Xbox One game? It clearly has fantasy connotations and you could almost say that the character in the middle has the outline of the seer from the Fable series. That seems unlikely though.
The roman architecture of this image is almost certainly Ryse from Crytek. This was originally announced as an Xbox 360 Kinect title but was delayed to take advantage of the better hardware in both the Xbox One and the Kinect 2. Will this be the Kinect game that appeals to “core” players?
Unknown Rare Title
Well, this image indicates that Rare is definitely working on something for the Xbox One. It looks a little futuristic and almost like a more cartoony version of Mass Effect. Could this possibly be an MMO of some kind?
Quantum Break was really the only completely new IP shown during Microsoft’s Xbox One reveal and also the one that showed the most gameplay. Remedy and Microsoft are borrowing from the Defiance model by producing a TV show that is integrated with the game. How it will all work is something to tune in on.
