VMware announced on its blog Tuesday that it won’t support installing or running x86 VMs on M1 Macs.
We will be delivering a Tech Preview of VMware Fusion for macOS on Apple silicon this year. We don’t plan to support installing or running x86 VMs on Macs with Apple silicon. macOS VMs are not in scope in the short term. There are challenges there which will require Apple to work with us to resolve.

Hopefully, someone will come out with an efficient way to virtualize (or at least emulate if virtualization is not possible) from Mac OS X 10.6.8 Server Snow Leopard (useful to open PowerPC applications like Eudora Mail, Palm Desktop or Canvas) to macOS 10.14 Mojave (Intel with 32-bit applications), as well as Intel x86 Windows 10 (32-bit & 64-bit applications inside), in the new ARM-based Apple Silicon Macs.
Thanks for the information!
