After finishing the game with a total of three scavenger bots, I started a New Game+ at 'Impossible' difficulty. However, I only got two scavenger bots at the start.

I already got to the part of the game where I get my "first" scavenger bot if in a New Game (Chapter 5), but I still had a total of two scavenger bots after that.

Is this by design if playing at 'Impossible' difficulty or is it a bug? If by design, will I get another scavenger bot at a later part of the game? If it's a bug, how do I avoid it when starting a New Game+? And is there a way to fix it?


EDIT:
There are speculations that this is a bug and is caused by not collecting all scavenger bots before finishing the game: [1] [2]. Anyone know where the last bench accessible in the game is (so the player won't drop a scavenger bot after retrieving all bots from that last bench, avoiding this bug)? Does anyone know if restarting a chapter from a finished New Game save may somehow fix this?

Do you know if your bot was out searching when you ended the game? Seems like a possible cause –  Ben Brocka Mar 6 '13 at 12:58
    
@BenBrocka I forgot if one of my bots was searching when I ended the game. Know if there's a fix if that was the case? –  galacticninja Mar 6 '13 at 13:04
    
No, just speculating. I wouldn't think that would be it, since if you save while they're searching, it saves their search status. –  Ben Brocka Mar 6 '13 at 13:52

I believe this is a bug, I have had the same thing happen to me and have heard from others who have lost 2 or even all three of their scavenger bots. they supposedly lost them from not having all three retreived when they started a new game+
