100% GPU Usage in Main Menu

★★★★ Novice

Product: Apex Legends
Platform:PC
Please specify your platform model. PC
AMD or Nvidia Model Number ASUS ROG GTX 1070 Strix
Enter RAM memory size in GB 12 GB
What is your gamertag/PSN ID/EA Account name? RamzBusy
Please provide your squad mates' gamertag/PSN ID/EA Account name if possible.
Which Legend were you playing (if applicable)?
Which Legends were your squad mates using (if applicable)?
Where did the issue occur? In the lobby (waiting area before the match)
Which part of the map or menu were you in? If you don't remember the exact name, please describe the area or what you were trying to do in the menu. Waiting for a match; looking at the store; looking at skins
What were you doing when the issue occurred? E.g. respawning a squad mate at a beacon, using an ability, a squad mate left the game. Browsing around in the main menu
Did your squad mates also experience the issue? I don't know
How many matches had you played in a row before the issue occurred? 1
When did this happen? (dd.mm.yy hh:mm) 12.02.19 22:30
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
How severe is your issue? Minor impact to gameplay
What happens when the bug occurs? At first, when the game starts, my GPU stays at around 30% - 40%... During the game, my GPU hits 75% - 90% which is what is expected... But after my first game of Apex, when I return to the main menu, or lobby, screen, my GPU hits around 95% - 100% load, causing my GPU to run hot, fans start to spin up, and my overall PC gets warmer due to the unnecessary, abundant use of my GPU in the main menu... I have not run into any other issues, but this might be a good thing to look into and to make others acknowledge the possibility of this same issue happening to them...
What should be happening instead? GPU usage should be much lower in the main menu
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play one regular game of Apex, then return to the main menu screen. Using a monitoring software like MSI Afterburner or CAM or HWInfo, notice the plentiful usage of the GPU.

Added my own, cause I have this problem all the time - even on the launch.
