Today's Xbox One presentation was light on games, but it sounds like Microsoft has surprises up its sleeves for E3. Speaking with Polygon, Microsoft's Studios corporate vice president Phil Spencer confirmed that one of Rare's established franchises will be making an appearance at E3 this year for Xbox One.

Spencer said, "Fans of Rare and Rare IP I think will be pleased with what we're going to show at E3," and followed up saying, "That historic IP that they've built I think can play a real important role on Xbox One."

Rare owns a number of IPs and franchises including Banjo-Kazooie, Conker, Perfect Dark, Viva Pinata, Kameo, and it recently renewed the trademark for Killer Instinct.
