I doubt anyone really misses ESXi for Apple Silicon Macs. It was a niche product when Macs were still intel based, with very limited support by VMware.
Besides, mac OS support in ESXi died with ESXi 8.0 (7.0 is the last version which still supports mac OS as guest OS, and that support stopped with mac OS 12 (Monterey). There is no support for mac OS 13 (Ventura), or the upcoming mac OS 14 (Sonoma).
There is no point for ESXi on Apple Silicon Macs.

I wonder if any under the counter deals are happening with TSMC to reduce AMD's capacity?
