Directly from part 4 of the RE2 developers round table discussion.

I screen capped the part from the video, just click each link in order, it has it in captions cause they are speaking Japanese.

it says..

“We have RE2 already, a complete package. People who want to play RE2 can play the original, that is RE2.”

On deciding to make the changes they did in the remake.

Video Link:

starts at the 10:58 mark.

This leads me to believe that despite REmake 2 working with canon cause the main events are the same, that OG RE2 is still the true canon.

That's why it's meant to be a reimagining. It's not a true one to one remake, and it was never supposed to be one.

I've pointed out before that they said the game was going to be different early on, still doesn't stop the whining about changes. At this point, they just like hearing their heads rattle.

Played the original not long ago and was let down. The remake is much better.

The original RE2 kinda has to be the canon. How else would Ada have survived getting shot AND falling down that long ass drop?

Also, they really should've bundled the OG RE2 with REmake 2. That way those who never played the original can play a cohesive story lol

She has her hookshot. It's slightly more believable than the canon path, with Mr X nearly breaking her in half only for her to get up like nothing and escape the city

Yeah she has her grappling hook, which is never seen or used in this game. And I know she used it in Umbrella Chronicles when it explained how she escaped, but that always felt like them just ripping off RE4. But that's besides the point.

For me, getting thrown against a computer terminal has a higher chance of surviving than getting shot in the CHEST, then falling off the walkway into a seemingly bottomless pit.
