Those who are interested in the direction that DC is going after the universe changing series Dark Nights Death Metal by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo must read DC Future State, but there is some confusion as to the reading order of each story. The simple answer is there is really no reading order other than to follow the numbers of each series that is not a one-shot comic. With that in mind if you would like to read them in chonological order then DC Comics provided the timeline for each possible future back in November of 2020. Thanks to Bleeding Cool for a vertical version.

2025: Arkham Knights, Batgirls, Batman/Superman, Batman Catwoman, Gotham City Sirens, Harley Quinn, Grifters, Nightwing, Outsiders, Red Hood, Robin Eternal
