I would recommend Godot (i switched from Unity 2 years ago). Easy to use, powerful, open source, great community, good graphics (PBR Renderer), and they are currently working on Vulkan support. Here's a long article detailing all the new stuff in Godot 3 that was released a month ago or so.

Unity is great though but the thing that bugged me the most was the uncertainty of the Linux version of the editor. It's still not officially supported and it's essentially (or used to be) just a small sideproject of a dev at unity to work on it. I used it several times in teams during game jams and we always run into some incompatibility problems between win and linux versions even though the versions were technically the same. Also, given the fact it's not officially supported they could pull the plug tomorrow. You never know. Because of this I would not recommend Unity to a Linux user until it's officially supported.
