Wellp, I don’t think there would be too much problem when it comes to the actual voicebank (if they indeed decide to make it a paid one of course), since Crypton could act as YAMAHA and give Twindrill the pass needed to develop a Piapro voicebank while they get some of the gains (they could also lend some help in development in exchange of a higher commission).
- While Twindrill and Crypton are on good terms and an experiment to see Teto's performance on the new engine isn't out of the question, I think the bigger question of whether Crypton will want to take her in is, ironically, more related to bureaucracy. In the end, Twindrill most likely wants to retain full rights and responsibility for Teto, and Crypton most likely doesn't want to be saddled with the extra responsibility of taking care of her, along with both of them probably wanting to set clear boundaries that she's not actually a Piapro Character. So I feel it's unlikely she'll end up a full-on product on it, and even if they do, I expect they'll be taking significant measures to keep them separated in a branding sense. (As a fun point, though, in the Teto 10th Anniversary livestream where they discussed sending Teto's samples to Crypton, they confirmed it was just something they did For Science, but also said that it would be funny if she could somehow turn into some kind of Vocaloid/UTAU hybrid -- then she'd be a "real chimera".)
I think the main problems would come with the inevitable increase of marketing and products she’ll get, unless Crypton doesn’t promote her at all. The only thing we know for sure is that, if Twindrill really intends to give Teto a more professional voicebank, Piapro is their best bet.
