Since the Titan is sold in the states (at least that's what I know), there is a chance that it'll appear in ATS someday... if SCS are able to aquire the licensing stuff for it...

Time will tell.

Are you sure the Titan is still sold as a new truck in the US? There's nothing about the Titan on the Mack US website. If it's not a current model, the chance of a license appears to be pretty slim.

They are of course still manufactured in Australia.

Titan is Pinnacle with Volvo D16 engine and it's not in sale for US anymore, only D13 engines available.
Guessing that long recression forced US haulers to pick medium trucks with smaller engines.

Huh, well, the last time I looked at Mack's website was about 3-4 years ago.

The Titan was discontinued just a month ago or so along with the Volvo D16/Mack MP10 for the North American market. Volvo cited the cost involved in keeping the engine compliant, and while the Volvo VNX was reconfigured so the Cummins X15 would take the D16's place, Mack decided that the Titan wouldn't be worthwhile for their customers if a Mack engine could not be offered.

As a result of this, it's unlikely the Mack Titan will be included by SCS as a licensed truck. Mods are a different story, however.

The Mack Titan was shipped in from Australia. The only thing of the U.S. version of the Mack Titan that was made in the US was the engines, trainsmissions, and maybe the chassis. But more laws were made to cut down on CO from all vehicles in the U.S. that made the U.S. engines soon to be unlawful to make. With the smaller engines the truck couldn't compete with North American made trucks, and even if they could make it compete it would be to much to spend to get comparied to a Peterbilt or a Kenworth or even the US made Mack trucks.
