This is now possible! 🙂 You should find this feature as a public beta by clicking the menu in the top right corner (the dropdown that appears when you click on your profile image) > Product Updates > Betas > [Public Beta] Configure associations when a record is created.
You can then configure the the record create form under Settings > Objects > Contacts / Companies / Deals / Tickets > Customize the 'Create ...' form.
Here's the full announcement:
[Public Beta] Configure associations when a record is created
Dec 8, 2022
What is it?
Currently, you aren’t able to set associations as visible or required when a new standard object record is created. This means that admins lack control over record creation, leading to inconsistent data and gaps in associations between records.
This feature will enable you to set associations as visible or required when a standard object record is created. You will be able to set both standard objects and custom objects as visible or required associations.
Note: This feature is not reflected in the Mobile experience yet.
Why does it matter?
Without this feature, you miss out on being able to segment deals or contact decision makers based on the deal status. For example, if a deal is created, and no associated contact is required, you miss the opportunity to attribute that deal to a specific rep.
How does it work?
Navigate to Object Settings, then click on “Customize ‘Create Record’ Form.”
In the left sidebar there is a section called “Associate [Record] With.” Check boxes to add an association to the form, and set these associations as required using the right panel.
A cardinality icon next to each option represents whether a record of that type can be associated to one or many other object records.
There are three scenarios where the “one-to-one” cardinality option will appear:
Contact → Companies
Deal → Companies
Ticket → Companies
Selecting the Companies → option means that a user will only be able to associate one company record to a new contact, deal, or ticket record, and this company will be automatically labelled "primary."

I need this feature to. If it's possible, could we set Associated Company & Associated Contact requiredat the creation of a deal (It could be set or not in "Set the properties your team sees when creating deals.")
