Hiya. As of right now there is 12 confirmed 'Tribes' all being humanoid. SBS has not given a single hint towards non humanoid tribes as of today. However tomorrow is a new day and who knows what they'll come up with.
Ps: Dwarves (Hrothi) and Giants (Yoru) are still humanoids :D
By "not hinting" you actually mean "they have directly said there won't be any non-human tribes"
All tribes will be tribes of Mann, this was confirmed as recently as the last Q&A, but it has always been said since way back when :D

closest things to non-human races we'll be seeing in CoE.
These aren't races/tribes, they are special traits that may or may not exist in the world, but if they exist, they will most definitely be actual players, and so therefore they will be part of tribes, since players can't be anything but tribes of Mann.
