I recently got AC:R from the Steam sale and completed the game. After the last 2 "portals" on Animus Island where repaired in the credits I still can't access them.

From a Google search about it I keep seeing that it may be a DLC coming up, but those threads are 7+ months old, and the only Single Player Gameplay DLC i see is The Lost Archives.

Do these portals ever open up in AC:R?

The gates have no purpose. The most common theory (partly confirmed by Jeff Yohalem who wrote TLA) is that the Animus Island gates were all originally meant to contain memories from Subject 16, but halfway through the dev team decided to focus on Desmond instead. The Lost Archive has 7 sequences in total, further proof that the gates were originally meant for these seven memories before they changed them into Desmond memories. This left the last two gates without any purpose.
