I think if you consider how Critierion has been reviving old NFS names I can see a new Underground coming in the near future. It was a long time ago when the Unerground series ran the racing joint and things were really different back then. If Criterion can make it great I have no doubt. The question is: will more then a few people still care?

But Maybe they might reflect back on the past and say wow I really loved that game... Might as well pick up NFSU3.
Well I will hope they go down that road.
If so Im right there waiting on that time.

...Uhh... I don't mean to bring up an old argument, but NFS: MW was Underground 3. Carbon was a sequel to MW. At the beginning of the game, Razor (main boss) says something along the lines of "you won't be racing underground anymore", and "you'll be out in broad daylight now". So MW is obviously a sequel to the Underground series. With each game you change cities, even in Underground 1 - 2. The intro shows how after winning your race in the first Underground you get a call from a mysterious number, where you get sabatoged and your car is destroyed by an SUV. You end up in California afterwards, and the story continues in NFS: U2. Carbon is a direct sequel of MW - You end MW escaping the cops in the M3 GT-R, and you're in that car at the beginning of Carbon. There's a pre-story to Carbon that happens between the events of MW and Carbon. So really, MW is Underground 3, and Carbon is Underground 4 if you wish to give them that title. It's really just a saga in the NFS series, similar to that of Star Wars "episodes". I didn't play Undercover or The Run, so I don't know if there's a continuation of the story or not. But there's plenty of open ends to Carbon's story, But I don't like where NFS has been going since around Carbon era.
I liked the gameplay of MW more personally - The physics felt a little more fun to me, and the cops are WAY smarter and more challenging. In Carbon, they're actually quite dumb and easy to get around. The only issue I have with the cop system in MW is the spike strips stopping your car. And I liked MW's city more. But, for me, Carbon had WAY better customization than MW... Which was actually one of the least elaborate of the NF'S's with tuning options. You only got to choose a certain few body kits, a small selection of paints, and only one vinyl/livery. Carbon had Auto-sculpt, and you could choose individualy bumpers and such. The paint system was great, and the livery editor was excelent.
BUT - my favorite NFS game of all time still stands as NFS: Hot Pursuit 2 on either GameCube, PC, or Xbox... For whatever reason, the PS2 version is completely different with physics and cop mechanics.

As much as I love to see NFSU3 or a remake of NFSU, it's pretty much a moot point overall; it's like waiting for SEGA to announce and release Dreamcast 2 that has never happened in any way for the past countless years since the Dreamcast's untimely demise. It'll basically never happen as EA and Criterion Games are completely focused on their latest game from last year. However, if they are to announce a remake of NFSU, then it can do wonders among the fans; I myself would LOVE the return of the Manual transmission as I've grown weary to race with the Automatic transmission which had me felt less skilled (and before you mention anything, even though it's a bit off topic a bit, Ridge Racer series, up until Unbounded, are arcade-styled racing games and it features an option to choose AT or MT, especially different arcade racing games with this feature), along with visual customization, performance customization, livery option, etc.
So, as I mentioned before, it's not going to happen unless EA and Criterion games make their announcement for their next NFS game.
