Since Apple is no longer updating Catalina then yes as the additional cameras were added in MacOS 11.2 and the previous versions will no longer be updated. You can see the latest list of supported cameras here:

Here is the previous support list from November 2020

I asked Apple Support the question and they said it's up to Olympus to provide the software information or whatever it is they need but when I asked the same question of Olympus they say that they have given this information to all the companies that make photo editing software so it's a case of finger pointing at the moment with no solution.

That just doesn't make sense to me.  The OTHER software publishers have had that information for quite some time. What incentive would Olympus have for ignoring a sizable segment of the computer platform market?  My suspicion is that the fault lies with Apple.
