(I am neither Eric nor from >G, so this is speculation.)
My understanding is that international publishing rights are not usually part of domestic (USA) publishing contracts for board games. Also, there hasn't been any intent to publish in German announced, to the best of my knowledge.

An actual German publication would likely take a few months for translation and editing, and it looks like there's a 4 month window between >G ordering a reprint and when it is expected to arrive. So I wouldn't expect availability for 6-9 months from the date that a publisher decides to publish in German.

Which is to say, to the best of my (admittedly incomplete) knowledge, no.

As above, they are working on one. That is all. Given that the reprint won't be out until December and the translation wouldn't be done yet, you can expect at least 6 months or more I would think. Just a guess on my part, and with no specific knowledge. Could be longer. It takes time to do these things.

I'd love to see a German version of this game.

It's been about a year since I first noticed it and thought it had great promise. Looks like I wasn't mistaken!

Same here. I am really hoping for a german Version, because my group does not like reading englisch text. I hope we do not have to wait too long.

The german version was confirmed in the GTG-Forum recently and will be published by Pegasus Spiele.

Shame that we will have to wait until Essen 2018, but nevertheless I am very excited this will be released in Europe at all!

Has anybody heard news?

I preordered it on Pegasus and the release datum on the website says 18 October 2018, but I didn't hear anything more from it.

The german version of Serpent Slumbering Beneath the Island seems to be available through Pegasus, not for online sale though, so you can try asking at your FLGS if they can order it for you

As far as I know -> all copies are sold out.

A friend of mine is working in my FLGS and contacted Pegasus.

Luckily this one (the snake) i allready got. It was a gift when i bought the german basegame at Essen-Spiel.
But i was wondering what is with the other promos. wasnt there some kind of firespirit together with the snake?
