I know, there's native support in Big Sur for bluetooth connected XBox One Controllers. However, two games published for MacOS by Feral Interactive (Thief and Deus Ex: Mankind Devided) required the controller to be connected with a cable. However, the only driver I found namend 360Controller does not support Big Sur and the developer won't continue work with that software.

Is there another way to connect my controller (with or without cable) to play both games?

I created a modified .plist-file for the games which worked like a charm.

The file needs to be put in

Steam/steamapps/common/$Game/$Game.app/Contents/Resources/InputDevices/Digital/

With the following content.
