Does this mean they are giving up on their own store?
That would be a loss because the store form Opera has less problems with malware than the one from Google.
Probably the reason is more this addon/extension by Opera:
Install Chrome Extensions allows you to install extensions from Google Chrome Web Store in your Opera browser.
