That looks incredible, can we expect this quality in games With this upgrade or Unreal 5?

Depends on the scope of the game, i would think if it is in a game it will be as a cutscene.

I want to say no, but if you look at the Unreal 4 tech demos for last gen some of the late gen triple AAA games ended up looking as good and sometimes better. At the time I didn’t believe gen 8 consoles would ever be able to live up to the Unreal 4 tech demos, but in the end they did. It seems unlikely as this demo looks amazing, but if history repeats itself, we are in for a treat.

It looks amazing. It's nuts to me that real-time photorealistic environments are now possible. The animation work is crazy impressive, too.

The rendering was still done offline.
You can see that in their presentation at Unreal Engine on YouTube.
