** The first account, via WordOfGod [[http://nichegamer.com/2015/05/denis-dyack-interview-part-1-yellow-journalism-and-what-really-happened-with-x-men-destiny/ from Silicon Knights chef Denis Dyack]], claims that behind-the-scenes Creator/MarvelComics licensing problems threw a monkey wrench into the game's budget: He says that the game was intended as a major AAA release at the end published by Activision, who formerly held the Marvel game license at the beginning of development, with Silicon Knights even pumping even more money into the budget than its employees' salary.\\\

Added DiffLines:

* PreOrderBonus: Juggernaut and Havok's suits and X-genes were pre-order bonuses. Most of the time pre-order bonuses are later made available for download online, but with developer Creator/SiliconKnights out of business and the game delisted from Xbox Live and PSN networks, no such luck here. Juggernaut's gear was made available normally on later-released discs, but if you didn't pre-order, you'll never be able to obtain the Havok gear.

* RoleReprisal: A lot of the voice cast from ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen'' reprise the roles for the game, including...
** Creator/NolanNorth as Cyclops. He's also Adrian Luca's father (almost fittingly, considering Adrian's VA, Scott Porter would go on to [[Anime/{{Wolverine}} voice]] [[Anime/XMen Cyclops]] [[VideoGame/MarvelHeroes himself]]).
** Creator/SteveBlum as Wolverine himself, [[VideoGame/XMenLegends though]] [[VideoGame/MarvelUltimateAlliance given]] [[TheSuperHeroSquadShow how]] [[VideoGame/SpiderManWebOfShadows many]] [[Anime/XMen times]], ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom he's]]'' [[WesternAnimation/HulkVs voiced]] [[WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes Wolverine]], [[VideoGame/MarvelHeroes that's]] [[VideoGame/SuperHeroSquadOnline not]] [[WesternAnimation/HulkAndTheAgentsOfSMASH much]] [[VideoGame/{{Deadpool}} of]] [[VideoGame/LEGOAdaptationGame a]] [[WebAnimation/LEGOMarvelSuperheroesMaximumOverload surprise]]. He also reprises the role of Pyro from ''WesternAnimation/TheSuperHeroSquadShow''.
** Creator/PhilLaMarr as Gambit. He's also Forge.
** Creator/KariWahlgren as Emma Frost.
** Creator/FredTatasciore as the Juggenaut, though ''[=WatXM=]'' wasn't [[VideoGame/X2WolverinesRevenge not for the first time he voiced Juggernaut]], nor would this game [[VideoGame/MarvelHeroes be the last]].
** Despite the reprisals from the others, ''[=WatXM=]'' co-star Creator/YuriLowenthal doesn't reprise the role of Iceman (voiced by Creator/JasonMarsden in this game), but instead voices Nightcrawler and Northstar.

** The second account, [[https://archive.is/ccLjr as described by anonymous sources]] over four years before Dyack's above testimonial and which Dyack personally rebukes in his account as an example of an article breeming with poor journalistic integrity in large part due to the complete anonymity and lack of references of the sources, claims that Dyack's growing egoism since Silicon Knights broke ties with Nintendo has reached its final evolution into power tripping and corporate mismanagement, insisting on holding absolute control of game development to himself to an absurd degree and ready to throw down with anyone who disagrees with him both inside and outside of Silicon Knights.\\\
