Feel free to google the numbers, they're easy to find.

$500+ million invested in the game.
Peak subscriber base 1.7 million. So say $40/copy = $68 million revenue

Let's say they managed to get all those subscribers to pay every month for the 11 months it was a subscription model..another $281 million revenue (and realistically they probably got a fraction of that).

-$500 million + $68 million +$281 million = -$151 million and it's probably worse than that. Add whatever they're making from F2P minus development costs to switch to F2P and costs since the changeover.

They've lost at least $100 million, probably more.

first google result I found

According to my math, the have made at least $200 million (I used your math and substituted the 200 in that article for your 500)
