Mac CSGO Solution! Come Here!
Ok now I found a solution how to get back the CSGO to steam Mac.

  1. Open Manage button and click Properties.
  2. Go to Betas
  3. From the Beta application dropdown select : csgo_demo_viewer-1.38.7.9

After selecting demo viewer it will start downloading the beta version and when finished just follow these steps:

  1. Open a Terminal Window
  2. Navigate to :
    /Users/[Username]/Library/Application\ Support/Steam/steamapps/common/Counter-Strike\ Global\ Offensive
  3. Type:
    bash ./csgo.sh


That's it. Enjoy your CSGO! 🎉

Not happy with Valve at all. Forcing an upgrade, and locking out macOS users was a d*ck move. Can confirm that OG's solution does work, however.

Keep in mind that the beta version of CSGO runs in insecure mode. You will not be able to connect to VAC secured servers (which requires trusted mode). Also, you will get an alert about needing to update your client (which is not possible to fix).

With that said, here's a quick and easy way to launch the game without the hassle of launching the terminal and entering long paths. All you need to do is replace [your_user_name] with what it actually is. When you run the terminal app, it will tell you in the title bar, and also [your_user_name]@[name_of_your_computer]

In Automator, create a new Application.

In that application, add an action "Run AppleScript" For the content of that AppleScript, and paste the following script -

tell application "Terminal"
activate
do script "bash '/Users/[your_user_name]/Library/Application Support/Steam/steamapps/common/Counter-Strike Global Offensive/csgo.sh'"
end tell

Save the script on your desktop or your applications folder, which is located in /Users/[your_username]/Applications

For anyone who is curious, CS2 was unable to play on an M1 Mac mini, despite attempting fixes described in https://www.reddit.com/r/macgaming/comments/16vi5mz/counter_strike_2_running_constant_60_fps_using/. Perhaps users with M1 Pro or M2 chip may have better luck.
