    I am seeing this issue too, it crash on launch, even for empty new project (couldn't even create the project).

    Windows doesn't suffer from this problem.

    This seems hardware dependent:

    - The more powerful mac mini works just fine.
    - But on this MacBook Air, 2019.4.0f1 LTS no longer launch.

    I wonder how to troubleshoot this issue.

    Try setting metalEditorSupport to 1 in ProjectSettings/ProjectSettings.asset with text editor before opening.

    2 possible solutions, I haven't tried them yet as my Macbook Air is at workplace:

    1. Try to force metal with editor launch command?

    https://forum.unity.com/threads/unity-editor-crashes-macos.739535/#post-6023909

    2. Try to open this empty 2019.4.0f1 project that I created on a Macbook Pro, with metalEditorSupport set to 1 already:

    If neither works, then I guess a bug report could be submitted to Unity, as the issue is no longer OpenGL specific.

    UPDATE: ok, neither of this work for MacBook Air 2012, I have replied to the original thread asking for more answers.

    An updated on this: I tried 2019.4.3f1 today, it's now able to launch an empty project on MacBook Air 2012.
