I could be wrong but I think Fanatec is working on a PS5 compatible DD system similar to the CSL. No idea when something like that would be released. Does anyone else make a DD setup?
I'm not aware of PS5 compatibility amongst the current DD makers, but it's not something I have looked for so I could well be wrong there.

The primary DD brands I am aware of are Simucube, VRS, Fanatec and Simagic. Of those, Simucube is the best. I believe Fanatec is your only hope for PS5 though. A PS5-compatible CSL DD would be an ideal fit for your purposes unless you plan to get into PC sim-racing. Even so, the CSL DD would do just fine to get you going on PC too. Eventually we all end up upgrading to more powerful bases like the Simucube 2 Pro, which is what I'm using, but that would be a big leap in your position right now.

I'd say wait for the PS5 version of the CSL DD.
