There's really no point, and there's not enough of an audience for specifically a dub by this point. MAYBE we'll get lucky and the rest of the series will be subbed. Because as we all know, the gap between 123 and the mid-700s has never been translated in English ever. :V

One reason, whjy Conan is still a big thing in Germany is because the Dub was really good.

Even Phoenix Wright, despite catching on far better, is still niche despite every god damn nerd like me praising it to death for over a decade. And even then, Detective Conan is too realistic and slow to grab most people the same way.
Even in terms of anime fandom I feel like its time has passed over here. No one even wants long runners anymore. I always hesitate to recommend it since either you spend an absolute absurd amount of time on one anime (even ignoring AOs). I can't even recommend the manga because of huge gaps in the middle that weren't translated well, and I don't exactly want to recommend buying the English manga volumes that would probably cost you more combined than an Xbox One X by this point.
Even if you pretend Conan is exactly as good as it was 15 years ago (because quality does not matter much one way or the other), it's a complete disaster to try and build an English speaking audience for it. The only way I could ever see it happening would be if TMS or someone put a lot of time and effort and money towards doing so and if they ignored the vast majority of AOs when releasing/re-releasing it over here.
