I would bet 30-50 million over the years including advertisement and everything. The voice acting in D3 was apparently done for free, its that bad.
1/10th of the cost of SWTOR and it will sell 10 times as many copies. EA should just give up on video games completely. Rushing development produces a crappy game, thankfully activision isn't as bad. They just add microtransations instead of force multiple releases a year.

Subscription games have a different sales limit to reach equilibrium to cost benefit.
Every subscriber at the 4 month period is equal to another copy sold.
For example if they sell 2 Million copies of the game and 1 Million subs at the 4 months mark they have essentially sold 3 Million copies.
Except when everyone quits after the free 30 days, due to the publisher wanting quantity over quality.
Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
