Im wondering if the PS4 (Pro) is compatible with a WD 10TB External USB 3.0 Hard Drive, i may need more space for my video games and before i buy one i wanna know if they are compatible with PS4.

Can't speak for the 10TB hard drive as an external, but since it would be large format it will need external power source, which would be less convenient than using USB attached 2.5" drive which does not require external power. I use a 4TB external 2.5" drive which spins up automatically when the console goes on, no extra fiddling with power on/off on the larger drives. After one year its not even quarter used yet so even if you completely fil the 4TB drive just switch to another one. Cost much less than 10TB, which would take a very long time to fill, and by that time they may even have much larger 2.5" drives at less cost than today. Good luck whatever you decide to do.

btw; I did use an external 3.5" drive on my PS3 console many years back, and can speak to the disadvantages of powering on/off external drives.

I used a WD but it's not a 10TB. I use a 2TB drive and I've had no problems

Wasn't the external HDD support only for drives up to 8TB?
