Are Vehicles Coming To Apex Legends?

@Shrugtal has found Hover Vehicle driver and passenger seat animations in the game files.

News of vehicles being added into Apex Legends has sparked questions on whether the maps are designed for them.
A number of Apex players have pointed out that Worlds Edge and Kings Canyon are significantly smaller than other Battle Royale maps.
This obviously begs the question on whether vehicles are suitable for Apex Legends.
Some fans have theorised the vehicles may operate on rails like the in-game train.
Of course, there's always the potential that a new map is added to the game.
This would open up possibilities for open-world vehicle travel on a bigger map.
Either way, the addition of the animations confirms Respawn is working on some form of vehicle travel.
Let's hope we find out the details of the update as soon as possible.
